C.F. Møller Architects appoints Jens Rex as new Head of Landscape & Urbanism
Jens Rex takes up his new position as head of C.F. Møller Architects' Landscape & Urbanism department. Jens comes from a position as creative director at LABLAND in Aarhus, where he has been employed since 2017.
- We warmly welcome Jens. His leadership skills, professional experience with solid and creative solutions in urban planning and landscape solutions, and communication skills will be a strong asset in continuing and further developing the positive development our Landscape & Urbanism department is in, says Julian Weyer, architect and partner in charge of Landscape & Urbanism at C.F. Møller Architects.
Jens Rex will be based at C.F. Møller Architects in Aarhus, but is linked to all C.F. Møller's offices, which are characterised by working across both urban and national boundaries.
In total, Landscape & Urbanism consists of approximately 20 employees. The department solves both independent tasks within landscape and urban planning and in cooperation with C.F. Møller's architects. Fundamentally, the work is characterised by an integrated design approach, where landscape and building are conceived as a coherent whole. - I am looking forward to start working and taking Landscape & Urbanism at C.F. Møller a step further. I say this with all humility, as C.F. Møller itself has a history of almost 100 years we must stand on the shoulders of and show respect through quality and innovation, and because the Landscape & Urbanism department has made an impression in recent years with several large, important and innovative assignments, says Jens Rex.
Jens Rex holds a Master of Science (Msc) in Architecture and Design from Aalborg University, where he is currently also an external lecturer. He is also a censor at the schools of architecture in Denmark. Before LABLAND, Jens Rex worked at Møller & Grønborg.
C.F. Møller's Landscape & Urbanism department is responsible for the landscape solution at Carlsberg's new headquarters in Copenhagen, which opened in 2020, and the LEGO Campus in Billund, which will open later this year, as well as the harbour front in Aalborg. Current assignments include a master plan for Guldborgsund Havneby, where the harbour in Nykøbing Falster will be transformed from a disused industrial harbour into a new urban area with integrated climate protection. The project Flodbyen Randers, which is a development plan that adapts the climate of future Randers, brings the city to the water and develops the attractive areas between the medieval centre, Gudenåen and Randers Fjord into a unique and nature-based river city. As well as the development of the NTNU Campus in Trondheim, which will create better conditions for researchers and students, and strengthen the relationship with the city. And further, the project Örnsro Timber Town, which is a visionary residential district in the centre of Örebro, Sweden, built in solid wood and focusing on integrating nature into the urban landscape.
