Some of the projects Snøhetta has worked on include:
National Opera and Ballet, Oslo
The Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centre Pavilion, Dovre, Norway
King Abdulaziz Centre for World Culture, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia
Alexandria Library, Egypt.
Snøhetta has also been appointed to design the Maggie's Centre in Aberdeen.
In 2004 the company received the Aga Khan Award for Architecture and in 2009 it was honoured with the Mies van der Rohe Award. It has also received the World Architecture Award for best cultural building twice.
