PHG213 – Plantenes Egenskaper

The .PDF I just finished is a compilation of the plants in the list posted in the previous post. This is a A1-sized poster with a visual representation of the various properties of the listed plants. The text is in Norwegian, and covers all major topics (with the exception of soil properties, water and sun requirements): Plants with divergent leaf colors, autumn colors, scents (and which parts gives off scent), various kinds of colorful fruits, toxic parts, plants with thorns, plants causing allergies, plants suitable for both cut and wild hedges of various heights, plants with colorful flowers and when they bloom, plants surviving harsh winters, plants that grow into large trees or ones that stay smaller, and so on. Enjoy.

Right-click the image below and choose ‘Save Target As’ to download the .PDF-file. NB: 45 MB file!
Optionally, you can download the file from Archileaks here!

PHG213 – Plant list

The hunt for the summer term plant directories is on!

After a ruthless search on Google Images I’ve compiled a list of the plants we are supposed to know in PHG213. This is a list of 130 flowers and 375 bushes/trees, mostly focusing on species native to Northern Europe/Scandinavia. Available for download in .PDF-format, and of course, for educational use only.

Right-click the image and select ‘Save Target As’ to download the plant index key. NB: 32 MB file!

Update: here is a link to the .PDF at 4Shared, for those who are unable to download it below.


I’m planning to use the indexes to create visualisations on the various plant properties (toxicity, soil demands, colors, scents etc). Stay tuned!

Useful iPad apps for architects and designers

Since my purchase of Apple’s iPad I have continuously been searching for useful applications for my use as a landscape architecture student. The list grows by the day. In this post I will list applications I have come to use regularly in my studies, as well as recommendations on useful tools for the architect and designer on the go. Many of the applications featured in this list have previously been selected as App of the Week in the Apple application store. Clicking on the links will take you to the application’s information page connected to iTunes.
I will update this post with more handy apps as time goes by – If you have recommendations, please don’t hesitate to leave me a reply!

  • We need to talk about water
    They say that the future wars and conflicts will be about water. Battles will be fought over a valuable and vital resource due to the decreasing levels of it. Despite our dependency of it, we seem to take it for granted. Is the ubiquity of water causing us to manage it so callously?
