Set in the Danish countryside the project works at 1:50,000 , 1:5000 and 1:500 using layers mapping, model development and scenario based planning. The key question of the thesis revolves around the relationship between community and commodity. In this instance the focus is on the Danish Agrarian community and the increasing need for forestry projects. The intention is to use forestry as a catalyst, (Perma)Culture as a philosophy and the practise of urban and landscape design to overcome the challenges faced by Danish Agrarian communities today and enable the emergence of a more resilient community. This was explored at a territory, village and farm scale, in order to understand how different structures and interventions can achieve a balance between commodity and community.
(Perma)Culture eludes to the philosophical foundation of work in permaculture, the key challenge however is bridging between this ideology and an industrial agrarian identity of much of the countryside today. One key question was how could existing afforestation incentives be configured as an infrastructural framework to enable the transition to an agrarian culture grounded more in permanence and ecosystem stewardship
