The teaching is design and research based. It builds capacity to understand and intervene in diverse contexts ranging from cities to extreme landscapes and territories.
This Master of Landscape Architecture at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design ties in with AHO’s unique history of landscape driven architecture, as well as the rich Norwegian design culture where large energy and infrastructural development are linked to innovative ways of mediating and designing within natural environments.
The school’s context is the Oslo metropolitan region, a vital environment and ideal location to study the link between cities and natural systems, particularly in regards to hydrology and topography. A city that is experiencing growth while remaining entangled in delicate ecosystems, Oslo is a productive laboratory to explore pressing challenges related to contemporary urbanism.
Water urbanism and water management is an essential part of the curriculum and an excellent example that bridges local and global challenges. Water in its diverse manifestations is both a context and medium for artistic expression and urban agendas. Another important context for the institute is Arctic Urbanism and landscapes. Arctic settlements face challenges from industrial and infrastructural development as well as climate change and the need for landscape architectural thinking and design is acute.
Within this exciting context, the landscape programme contributes to build global agendas, particularly through traveling studios that address:
- Latin American
- European landscapes and territories.
AHO’s international master programme in landscape architecture is one of the newest in the world. This grants us the opportunity to be innovative, to experiment and to explore the currents frontier of landscape architectural methodologies. No doubt climate change is one of these, and our particular focus on northern contexts builds specific knowledge that is adaptable to any landscape that is subject to rapid change.
