Works by Snøhetta presented by Craig Dykers (Oslo/New York)

  Oslo Opera Snøhetta  

Craig Dykers is founding partner of Snøhetta, Norway/USA and leading architect on the National September 11 Memorial Museum Pavilion at the World Trade Center in New York.

Since 1989, Craig Dykers has established offices in Norway, Egypt, England, and in the United States. His interest in design as a promoter of social and physical well-being is supported by ongoing observation and development of an innovative design process.

As one of the Founding Partners of Snøhetta, Craig has led many of the office's prominent projects internationally, including the Alexandria Library in Egypt and the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in Oslo, Norway. He is currently overseeing Snøhetta's two New York City projects, the National September 11 Memorial Museum Pavilion at the World Trade Center and the new Times Square Reconstruction. Craig is also leading the design of two new projects in San Francisco, the expansion of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the waterfront Golden State Warriors Arena. Other recent projects include the James B. Hunt Jr. Library at North Carolina State University completed this year, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery Expansion Masterplan in Buffalo, New York, the Wolfe Center for the Arts at Bowling Green State University, and the Museum for Environmental Sciences in Guadalajara, Mexico which is currently in development. In 2011, Craig and Snøhetta collaborated with the Guggenheim Museum on immersive installations for their series titled "Stillspotting."
