Department of Landscape Architecture
School of Architecture & Landscape Architecture
Professor Roehr teaches Landscape Architecture at SALA/UBC and is a licensed landscape architect in BC and Berlin. Since 2007, he runs the research group greenskinslab. He and his team are currently developing a stormwater management application to size the scale of Low Impact Development (LID) in the concept design phase of an urban design project. Daniel co-authored the book “Living Roofs in Integrated Urban Water Systems” (Routledge 2015) and regularly publishes (see ResearchGate profile).
He also runs a hand-drawing blog and an Instagram profile which archives 30 years of his architectural hand drawings to inspire students to continue to use hand drawing as a design thinking and research tool (including LID communication, acceptance, and calculation) additional to current digital-modeling applications. In 2013/14, he was a UBC Sustainability Research Fellow and in 2016 he received the Killam Teaching Prize from UBC. Daniel's second book "Sense-ible Design: Interacting with the Landscape for Designers" is expected in spring 2021 with Routledge.
