Snøhetta named Wall Street Journal Magazine’s 2016 Architecture Innovator of the Year

The Wall Street Journal has announced Snøhetta as the WSJ Magazine 2016 Architecture Innovator of the Year. Founding Partners Craig Dykers and Kjetil Trædal Thorsen were presented the award by artist and musician Laurie Anderson at the sixth annual awards ceremony on November 2, 2016. Snøhetta joins this year’s list of honorees that includes Ai Weiwei (Art), Es Devlin (Design), Daniel Humm & Will Guidara (Food), Melinda Gates (Philanthropy), Tom Ford (Film), and The Weeknd (Music). WSJ Magazine profiles the practice in the November 2016 issue, writing that Snøhetta “has flouted architectural norms to become one of the world’s most sought-after firms.”

The Wall Street Journal writes, “For far longer than perhaps any other firm working today, Snøhetta has been ‘saying no to any ultimate design theory,’ as Dykers puts it, touting instead an architecture free of banner slogans and signature styles. This can make it difficult to get a clear picture of what Snøhetta is really up to. But it’s also what makes the firm so interesting to watch.”
