to JMW I’m educated landscape architecht with my master coarses in spatial planning and implementation of parks and urban spaces as my master degree – from UMB.no (university of life sciences in norway). I’ve been working mostly with urban public planning, but now I’m working in a consultant company (Norconsult).
Norwegian educations has recently been criticised for not offering and clean planner education; most ar master degrees in architecture, landskape architecture, geography with master coarses in planning. Thus many here have a combined approach. Most LAs do though work in drawing detailed projects, not planning. I guesss 10-30% of LA in Norway work with spatial planning issues.
