Using art, landscape architecture and ecology, Norway’s first waterscape architect creates a broad awareness of the underwater impacts of development along our coastlines and offers innovative solutions.
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.
