Søren Carl Theodor Marius Sørensen , also known as C.Th. Sørensen (1893-1979) was an internationally famous Danish landscape architect.

He is notable for pioneering the concept of "adventure playgrounds", inspired by children playing with leftover materials on construction sites, and with the help of children as builders.[1] He was professor of landscape architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and wrote many books on gardens and landscaping.[2]

He was awarded the Eckersberg Medal in 1945 and the Prince Eugen Medal in 1972.[3][4]
