edit is a landscape architecture and urbanism studio based in Oslo, led by Linn Runeson & Eric Reid. The duo has a background in Landscape, Architecture, Urbanism, Art and Design.

Established in 2018, edit was created to address the lack of transversal visions and approaches that have resulted in an urgent need to rethink how to live without losing nature and the natural systems that sustain us all.

The studio is engaged in a variety of projects ranging from the planning and design of gardens and public spaces, to larger scale masterplans and territorial strategies. We often collaborate with architectural offices, engineers, artists and researchers among other specialist on the transformation of complex urban landscapes.

We offer full service landscape design services and like to work between physical and digital models, onsite testing, and engagement through workshops.

Our cities are a collective landscape project. We thrive in re-thinking urban landscapes as living systems and are often invited to work on large scale planning commissions and competitions to find invisible logics and identities underlying the site, and often use competitions as a form of research and innovation that can be applied and adapted elsewhere; "studio as a project, project as a studio".

Currently we are working on several transformation sites that have significant historical value, and truly enjoy practicing within these environments. For us the "unseen" of the landscape and atmosphere often act as a starting point for the new narrative of a site - the logic is in the landscape.

We believe in a highly collaborative & innovative process and to develop long lasting relationships with the actors within each project, this communication plays a central role as most projects emerge over several years.

We use "edit" as a framework to structure our design process:

1 explore the context and examine the spatial potentials in relation to the narrative of the project.

2 develop strategies for the best design value, combining resources and functions for synergies.

3 imagine and integrate fun and playfulness into the process - no reason for our living environments to be boring!

4 team-up with experts from other disciplines, and communities; the greatest results come from working laterally.

At the heart of our practice is a profound desire to render landscape as an essential part of making meaningful and sustainable habitats for all living kind.


Linn Runeson received her master’s degree in Architecture from Lund University with a specialised exchange focusing on Urbanism & Landscape at The Oslo School of Architecture & Design. In addition she has studied Industrial Design at the Umeå Institute of Design,  Art at Gerlesborgs Kunstskole, and Glass Design at Linnaeus University.

Eric Reid received his master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from The Oslo School of Architecture & Design, and an Advanced diploma in Landscape Design from Fanshawe College. He has lectured at various institutions including The Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape & Design University of Toronto, and been an Assistant Professor at The Oslo School of Architecture & Design.
