Institute of urbanism and landscape
(Mari Nysveen Hellum: Gammelt nytt)
The Institute of Urbanism and Landscape is dedicated to teaching, research and development within urbanism and landscape architecture. It emphasises a broad multidisciplinary approach, with particular attention paid to challenges posed by the design of the urban environment. The Institute maintains a strong international profile, with a well-established network of partner institutions.
As part of AHO’s master programme in architecture the Institute offers a Master of Landscape Architecture, a post-professional Master of Urbanism as well as a PhD. Additionally, it has recently established a new master programme in landscape architecture in collaboration with the University of Tromsø.
The academic staff includes 20 professors and researchers, 18 PhD fellows and 130 students in the Foundation. Marianne Skjulhaug is Head of Institute.
