RIBA + VitrA Talk: Snøhetta

Craig Dykers and Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, founding partners of the global office Snøhetta, will present some of the practice’s recent works and outline their trans-disciplinary approach to architecture and landscape.

Snøhetta kick started its career in 1989 with the competition-winning entry for the new library of Alexandria, Egypt. Some of their most notable works include the Norwegian National Opera in Norway, and the National September 11 Memorial Museum Pavilion at the World Trade Center in New York. More recently, Snøhetta completed Europe’s first underwater restaurant, Under, in Norway, the expansion to the San Franscisco Museum of Modern Art and the design for Norway’s new banknotes.

Since its inception, the practice has maintained its original trans-disciplinary approach, integrating architectural, landscape, interior, graphic design, and product design into its projects.

The evening will begin with a lecture by Craig Dykers and Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
