Workshops and Masterclasses

The Masterclasses on Urban Design are an offer of the Liveable Cities Lab to upgrade the knowledge of Ramboll employees for designing Liveable Cities. The target is to provide an innovative and creative environment for Ramboll employees from all disciplines to improve projects they are currently working on.

A Masterclass agenda includes: introduction, water experiments, drawing exercises, presentation of the fluid thinking approach, and a presentation of ground-breaking landscape architecture, water design and urban planning projects of Herbert Dreiseitl. The presentation was focused to water-related problems essential for the participants, and projects in similar climatic zones to the ones the participants are working on. Four general types of projects that were touched upon in this workshop:

  1. Residential projects that need innovative storm water management
  2. Urban water design in public spaces (flows and public spaces)
  3. River restoration and bank revitalization management
  4. Dense city environments that need to introduce innovative landscape design and waterscapes

The take-outs from a Masterclass are that the participants improve their projects by discussing the vision for their project and the way of implementation and design. The feedback of the participants showed that the LCL Masterclass is urgently needed to start a professional discussion between Ramboll's design experts.

Herbert Dreiseitl supports the class by giving his feedback on every project and general advice for similar projects, like a toolbox of general principles for the four different categories of projects.
