This spring, the Center for Architecture in Portland, Oregon will open the first full-scale exhibition of Snøhetta’s work in the US. Designed, built, and curated by the designers themselves, Snøhetta: People, Process, Projects invites visitors behind the scenes of the office’s culture and design philosophy. First created in collaboration with the Danish Architecture Centre in Copenhagen in Summer 2015, the exhibition will open on April 17, 2016 to kick off Design Week Portland.
The exhibition allows visitors to step inside, interact with, and explore Snøhetta. Join us at the lunch table or inside the workshop, where 3D prototyping and traditional craftsmanship drive conversations and exploration of new forms. Learn about how Snøhetta is designing the world’s foremost net-zero energy buildings that will produce more energy over the course of their lifetime than they use.
