In the autumn of 2016 he joins the faculty at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design’s Institute of landscape architecture. 

Institute leader, Marianne Skjulhaug emphasizes Calleja's great graphic and conceptual abilities and the quality of his surveys, montages and scenario-oriented work. - His expertise ranges from a vegetation theory of urban design to territorial scale. His projects include intellectual landscape qualities, a thing very few design projects do. This has great significance in the northern territories. Callejas shows great precision and elegance in all scales. In addition, he has a wonderful ability to engage students in experimental projects And, he has a history of extreme popularity among his students. We really look forward to welcoming him to Oslo next semester, says Skjulhaug.
