Professor Peder Anker's teaching and research interests lie in the history of science, ecology, environmentalism and design, as well as environmental philosophy. He has received research fellowships from the Fulbright Program, the Dibner Institute, and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, and been a visiting scholar at both Columbia University and University of Oslo. With Louise Harpman and Mitchell Joachim, Professor Anker is the co-author of Global Design: Elsewhere Envisioned (Prestel, 2014), a showcase of design research as it relates to visionary architecture, landscape architecture, urbanism, and ecological planning. He is the author of From Bauhaus to Ecohouse: A History of Ecological Design (Louisiana State University Press, 2010), which explores the intersection of architecture and ecological science, and Imperial Ecology: Environmental Order of the British Empire, 1895-1945 (Harvard University Press, 2001), which investigates how the promising new science of ecology flourished in the British Empire. Anker’s current book project explores the history of ecological debates in his country of birth, Norway. He received his PhD in history of science from Harvard University in 1999. Links to his articles and up-to-date information about his work are available at http://pederanker.com.
Luis Callejas works and research challenge the distinction between architecture and landscape architecture. Luis Callejas is professor at the Oslo School of Architecture since 2016.
Callejas taught at the Harvard University Graduate School of design between 2011-2016 (in Architecture and landscape architecture) and was the 2020 Louis Kahn visiting professor at Yale.
His completed works include the aquatic center for the XI South American games, an open-air complex of swimming pools and public space in Medellin and the renovation of Bogotá’s main stadium. In Norway he designed Norway’s guest of honor pavilion at the Frankfurt book fair, currently he is in designing the landscape for the renovation of the former US embassy designed by Eero Saarinen together with SLA.
He was awarded with the Architectural League of New York Prize for Young Architects in 2013 and selected as one of the world’s ten best young practices by the Iakov Chernikhov International Foundation in 2010. Callejas was nominated again in 2012 and 2014.
