At AHO, we get our own work desk each semester, which gives a close contact with professor and fellow student. We work in spacious drawing rooms, where there are discussions, conversations as well as work in deep concentration. We benefit from the fact that the school is offering both landscape architecture and design. I have been able to choose interdisciplinary courses, and the same facilities such as the workshops and 3D labs are offered to all students. Students get the opportunity to attend study trips around the world. I also spent a semester in Japan as part of the school's exchange program.
