Established in 1989 in Oslo, Norway, Snøhetta established its New York office in 2004 — the same year it was awarded the commission for the National September 11th Memorial Museum and Pavilion at the World Trade Center. Its international practice emphasizes site-specific and environmentally responsible design solutions that “enhance…qualities of place and create diverse and rich architectural experiences.”
