Oslo School of Architecture and Design

Located in the centre of Oslo, the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) is an autonomous institution within the Norwegian university system. It was established in 1945 as a “crisis course” for architects who had seen their education interrupted by World War II and later, in 1962, it was established as an independent institution. The School offers a unique research-based education with a strong international standing within the fields of architecture, urbanism, design and landscape architecture. International students at AHO constitute 25% of the Master ones and 50% of the PhD ones. Studios, data labs, and unstaffed workshops are open to students 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The international faculty consists of academics and practicing professionals who provide the necessary breadth needed for a contemporary architecture and design education.
