Under Under is a recently launched initiative at the Institute of Urbanism and Landscape, Oslo School of Architecture and Design. It’s a quarterly publication, under the direction of architect and researcher Luis Callejas, that set forth to “link the work and thoughts of practitioners, educators, and researchers in the field landscape, architecture, urbanism, and the visual arts.” The inaugural issue is dedicated to the works of Hanne Bat Finke, and, in particular, the late Jeppe Aagard Andersen. It has been edited and designed by Luis Callejas and Christiana Pitsillidou, with Peter Hemmersam and Marianne Skjulhaug as guest editors. Morgan Alexander Ip proofread all contributions. Upcoming issues: “Andrea Branzi – Luis Callejas”, “Günter Vogt – AHO students”, and “Anita Berrizbeitia – Marianne Skjulhaug”.
