For nearly 30 years, Snøhetta has designed some of the world’s most notable public and cultural projects. Snøhetta kick-started its career in 1989 with the competition- winning entry for the new library of Alexandria, Egypt. This was later followed by the commission for the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo, and the National September 11 Memorial Museum Pavilion at the World Trade Center in New York City, among many others. Since its inception, the practice has maintained its original trans-disciplinary approach, integrating architectural, landscape and interior design in all of its projects. Snøhetta is currently working on a number of projects internationally, including the Le Monde Headquarters in Paris; Temple University’s upcoming library, and the design for Norway’s new banknotes which went into circulation in 2017. The new Central Library in Calgary is Snøhetta’s most recently completed library project, following the Ryerson University Student Learning Centre in Toronto, Canada and the James B. Hunt Library at North Carolina State University. Additionally, Snøhetta is currently working on the Cornell University Executive Education Center and Hotel and two public libraries in New York City, one in Far Rockaway, Queens and one in the Bronx. Recently completed works include the redesign of the public space in Times Square, the Lascaux IV Caves Museum in Montignac, France, and the expansion to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
