Mobility planning, public realm design and client advisory services to Denmark's Technical University since 2015

Denmark's Technical University, DTU, is reinforcing its global standing as a leading scientific university through ambitious investment in their built environment. In recent years, 4 billion kroner has funded the construction of 20 new buildings to support DTU's research pursuits and academic goals.

DTU is capitalising on new light rail, bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure as key drivers guiding future growth. Investment into new university buildings to densify the campus will be prioritised under our DTU Strategic Campus Plan that consolidates the campus in strategic locations to become less car-dependent and more attractive.

 

In 2020 and 2021 Louise Grassov will represent DTU on key capital projects to safeguard the delivery of goals and visions developed under her leadership in 2018 and 2019.

Strategic Campus Plan

Following several mobility planning and public realm design assignments at DTU since 2015, Schulze+Grassov won the tender to lead a multi-disciplinary team appointed to draw up the DTU Strategic Campus Plan. This plan is conceived as a development vision rooted in a new mobility strategy that focusses development strategically to support the emergency of a true multi-modal university campus with high quality open spaces.

Sustainable Campus Planning

As a prerequisite for sustainable campus planning, new public transportation alternatives for the campus are harnessed as drivers to locate more space for teaching and research near transit stops. Improving connectivity on campus, the overall network of paths is improved to invite more users to walk and cycle. This way, density and location planning support a more sustainable mobility culture accessible to a growing number of users in the future.

Framework Thinking

We have collaborated closely with the university to draw up a plan that can guide growth of new space for teaching and research. Beginning with sustainable mobility, the plan suggests a new campus structure that capitalises on walking, bicycling and public transit infrastructure. New sites for development reinforce our hierarchy of open spaces and invite students, faculty and staff to use the campus more actively.

The integration of the regional light-rail system Letbane on campus formed the core of a series of appointments for us. Alignment options for tracks and the design of stops were studied along with the challenges and potentials they bring to the campus experience for users. We helped the administration mitigate the challenges that an urban light-rail system brings to pedestrian campus connectivity, helping to evolve the user-friendly design of campus streets.

The failure to integrate rail-based transit on Denmark's largest post-war campus was an inherent planning mistake in the original car-based campus design. Providing public transit accessibility to neighbouring communities and a regional transit network serving the wider capital region of Denmark will correct this mistake by 2025.

Design Guidelines for Bicycle Facilities

To elevate cycling from a second choice to a natural choice, we helped the administration to provide campus-wide design guidelines for bicycle facilities and mobility hubs that can help induce a new way to think of mobility on campus. Our work will help to deliver the goal of shifting the majority of trips out of the cars, and onto bicycles in coming years.
