studio erde – office for anthropocene landscapes

 stands for a planetary modus operandi and highly specific and earthly design language

- How do we design the spaces and narratives

for radical and alternative landscape futures?

Marcel Tröger is an upcoming Berlin based Landscape Architect and Urban Designer. He works at the intersection of landscape architecture, ecology and urban design. His focus of work ranges from the development of territorial strategies, radical and speculative project ideas and narratives, up to spatial and object implementations and installations, constantly on the search for renewed expressions of alternative aesthetics of a Baukunst for and in the Anthropocene. He is the recipient of several awards in international planning and idea competitions, such as the Lenné-Prize for Landscape Architecture, the Schinkel-Prize Berlin, the EUROPAN competition and recently received the LILA Award 22 for his works and portfolio. 

After graduating from Technical University Berlin and ENSP Versailles, he recently founded the research and design practice “studio erde.”, collaborating with different disciplines and institutes on urban strategies and competitions. studio erde stands for a radical approach in revealing the complexities of todays intertwined territories and engaging in them by developing an intiutive design approach for hybrid naturcultures and alternative spatial typologies for a landscape architecture in the anthropocene.  

Besides his own practice, Marcel is working for internationally acclaimed landscape architectural offices (Vogt Landscape, currently employed as project leader at bgmr Landscape Architects) on multidimensional strategies and design projects, as visiting lecturer for design studios at the TU Berlin and the BTU Cottbus and as regular guescrit at different universities.
