International Master of Landscape Architecture

The International Master of Landscape Architecture gives studio-based tuition. All in an environment of constant and close interaction with Scandinavian and international practitioners, researchers, and educators. AHO provides access to a diverse palette of tools, sharing resources with AHO’s Architecture and Design programmes. AHO promotes constant experimentation with diverse landscape media. Media and technology are areas explored in synchrony with the Architecture and Design institutes, and as such the school offers the possibility to experiment with techniques and tools that extend beyond the traditional limits of landscape architecture.

Each semester the studios evolve around a core theme and is supported by particular techniques and experiments that focus on one of three successive landscape media: ground, live matter, and form in time. Each studio course is flanked by a theoretical elective course. The fourth semester is an independent diploma semester.
