SLA is a part of the exhibition Mission Neighbourhood – (Re)forming communities with the project Gellerup: Mission Neighbourhood Plants.

The installation is developed by SLA together with the inhabitants of the residential area of Gellerup in Aarhus.

SLA is a nature-based design studio working with landscape architecture, sustainable urban design, and city planning. Founded in Copenhagen, they have for 30 years designed some of the most notable public spaces and masterplans in the world. From the offices in Copenhagen, Oslo and Aarhus, SLA designs cities, public space, and nature on all scales: From parks and plazas to city-wide masterplans and national biodiversity strategies. The studio currently has ongoing projects in Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East. Everywhere the ambition and mission are the same: To design places for life. All life.
