Globalisation has increasingly become a controlling factor of urban development today and thus also determine the way towns 'behave' themselves. The complexity that is embedded in this urban development, has made it difficult to maintain not just static images on the desired spaces, but also long-‐term plans and the conventional long‐term planning seems no longer feasible to the same extent as previously. The city planner’s role seems challenged in the direction of integrating and managing these more complex urban situations such as adaptation to climate change, which is taking place in the urban planning field as one of the key driving forces. On this background, I found it interesting to investigate how to embrace the urbanization processes taking place in Copenhagen today, while aiming at sustainable planning that can make the city resistant to climate change. It has led me to the following problem formulation: To what extent can a landscape-‐based planning practice meet the urban challenges we face today? Through a look at the evolution of the urban planning discipline since the modernist planning I will examine the current challenges in order to establish a new understanding of the efficiency of landscape elements in interaction with urban processes towards the development of a sustainable and resilient city. This is based on the landscape urbanism planning approach, pointing to the landscape as containing an important strategic potential. Skt. Kjelds Kvarter, which the City of Copenhagen has been selected as a pilot area for climate change adaptation in a densely populated area, will over the next five years undertake a comprehensive climate adaptation. The neighbourhood is a central case in this thesis and will be used to highlight the potentials in the landscape urbanism planning approach and the difficulties that may arise in connection with the use of an expanded concept of landscape in the planning framework.
