About Design in Nature

A selection of cases has been compiled in a Nordic Atlas. They reflect a broad range of design solutions and strategies promoting responsible engagement with and regeneration of nature.

National overviews of design in Nordic nature reflect how growth in tourism has instigated a series of strategic initiatives and design interventions in natural settings. However, more collaboration is needed to unleash the full potential of design to support nature protection and nature experience in the region.

On this site you can browse the cases and read the overviews.

We aim to inspire you to put nature first and cooperate as part of nature with intelligent and responsible design.
