Snøhetta

03/22/2010

International architecture firm Snøhetta, founded in Oslo in 1989, are exhibiting some of their most important work at Scandinavian House: The Nordic Center in America, located at 58 Park Ave in NYC. Throughout April 24th, 2010, you can view a collection the firm’s environmentally-conscious designs through films, drawings, models, and interactive learning devices.

Snøhetta’s designs take both cultural and environmental contexts into consideration, finding a balance between the natural and built worlds.  An intriguing characteristic found in much of their architecture is a blurring between sub/superterranean boundaries.  Pictured below are the King Abdulaziz Center for Knowledge and Culture, the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, and study models.
