Historically AHO and the Norwegian design culture in general,  has explored the links between infrastructural developments and innovative ways to design within delicate and dramatic natural environments.
Education is studio based in an environment of constant personal contact with Scandinavian and international practitioners, researchers, and educators. AHO provides access to a diverse palette of tools, sharing resources with the Architecture and Design programs. Within this environment of shared resources, AHO promotes constant experimentation with diverse landscape media that extend beyond horticultural material. 
The school's context is the Oslo metropolitan region, a vital environment that is an ideal location to study the link between cities and natural systems, particularly in regards to hydrology and topography. As a city that has been experiencing growth while in contact with delicate ecosystems, Oslo is a productive laboratory to explore pressing ecological challenges related to contemporary urbanization.
