How is it that little Norway was the first country in Europe to offer a academic study programme in landscape architecture, decades before culturally advanced nations such as Germany, England and France?
It is one hundred years since the landscape architect programme began at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) making Norway the first country in Europe to educate landscape architects and this centennial will be celebrated with the OUTDOOR MATTERS exhibition at the National Museum – Architecture, Oslo.
In 2014, the School of Landscape Architecture (ILA) ) opened the Archive of Norwegian Landscape Architecture. The education in landscape architecture at NMBU is the second oldest in the world, which makes the Archive unique.
The research theme of the PhD programme in Society, Development and Planning encompasses key challenges to society in the fields of urban and regional planning, real estate and law, public health science and landscape architecture.
