Inside/Out Snøhetta: People/ Process/Projects

17 January 2022 | 6.30pm


Snøhetta began as a collaborative architectural and landscape workshop, and has remained true to its transdisciplinary way of thinking since its inception. Snøhetta’s work strives to enhance our sense of surroundings, identity and relationship to others and the physical spaces we inhabit, whether feral or human-made. Museums, products, reindeer observatories, graphics, landscapes and dollhouses get the same care and attention to purpose.

Snøhetta speaks not of a method as such, but of the interwoven interdependency of People, Process and Projects. The projects can be described as examples of attitudes rather than designs. They are samples in a series of contextual examinations rather than isolated masterpieces. They are associative rather than symbolic. They are comments rather than statements. Every story told is a shared experience of contemporary conditions set within a given frame.
