Interview: Craig Dykers/Snøhetta (Fall 2006)

Craig Dykers 4

Craig Dykers,  one of the original founders of Snøhetta, established the U.S.-based office of the Norwegian firm in New York City in 2006 after receiving a coveted commission for the new National September 11 Memorial Museum Pavilion at Ground Zero. Snøhetta's origins date back to the 1989 Alexandria Library Competition in Egypt, where the winning team, consisting of three architects in Los Angeles and two Oslo architects, all of whom were under 30 years of age, won the competition. With the support of the Norwegian government, that team established itself in Oslo, took on the name, Snøhetta, and subsequently won several competitions, including the much acclaimed Oslo Opera House Competition. The New York City office, established by Dykers, has subsequently won several important commissions in the U.S.: including the Bowling Green State University Performing Arts Center; North Carolina State University Library on their new, west campus; Temple University Library; and the recent Calgary Public Library, the latter won in a  invited competition.
