Stig L. Andersson (born 30 March 1957) is a Danish landscape architect, founder and Creative Director of Copenhagen-based SLA which has developed into an interdisciplinary organisation working with landscape, urban spaces and urban planning.

Andersson is also an adjunct professor at University of Copenhagen and was visiting professor at Aarhus School of Architecture in 2009.

Biography[edit]

Stig L. Andersson studied landscape architecture at the School of Architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1981 to 1986. Following his graduation, he travelled to Japan on a Japanese scholarship. After first embarking on an academic career, working as an assistant professor from 1985 to 1991, he set up his own practice in 1994.[1] In 2002 it was the first office to be awarded the international landscape architecture magazine Topos's European Landscape Award in recognition of its focus on sensory urban spaces.[2]

The firm is a frequent collaborator with leading Danish architectural firms such as Henning Larsen Architects, C. F. Møller Architects and Lundgaard & Tranberg.

At the 2011 International Horticultural Exposition in Xi'an, China, Andersson was one of 10 landscape architects specially invited to create a so-called 'master garden'.[3]
