The International Master of Landscape Architecture gives AHO students a platform of skills, competence and knowledge, based on design and research, to operate as professional landscape architects. It fostersthe capacity to understand and act in diverse contexts, ranging from cities to extreme landscapes and territories.
The International Master of Landscape Architecture focuses on design, emphasizing the relationship between present pressing challenges, landscape history and possible futures. AHO’s landscape specialisation builds on the legacy of The Oslo School of Architecture, particular the school’s unique history of landscape driven architecture. AHO, and the Norwegian design culture in general, has a history of exploring the links between infrastructural developments and innovative ways to design within delicate and dramatic natural environments.
The education is studio-based in an environment of continuous and close interaction with Scandinavian and international teachers, practitioners and researchers. AHO provides access to a diverse palette of tools, sharing resources with AHO’s Architecture and Design programmes, and as such the school offers the possibility to experiment with techniques and media that reach beyond the traditional limits of landscape architecture.
AHO takes advantage of the international environment of Nordic, European and international students. They have different creative backgrounds and learn from each others in the studio environment. The students gain skills, methodologies and leadership abilities to become proactive in the international field of landscape architecture.
