A bit about the ARCHITECT
Snøhetta (Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈsnøːˌhɛtɑ]) began as a collaborative architectural and landscape workshop and has remained true to its trans-disciplinary way of thinking since its inception.
Our 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.
A variety of Operas, Ballets and concerts are presented at the Oslo Opera.
