Since January 2014, former BioBE Graduate Research Fellow Max Moriyama has been working at the Danish architecture firm Tredje Natur (or ‘Third Nature’ in English). The office explores the potentials of nature in the city, and specializes in climate-adaptive design, which seeks to prepare cities for increases in storm events, while simultaneously striving to enrich city life. The projects of Tredje Natur range in scale and focus, from the first climate-adapted neighborhood in Copenhagen to a landscape integrated swim hall. Just recently, Max was amongst the team who won the competition to renovate Enghaveparken, a classic Danish park in Copenhagen. The proposal meets water challenges — including the ability to store up to 26,000 m3 of torrential rain to prevent neighborhood flooding — with activated spaces for recreation and revitalized nature.
