AV Proyectos 082: Dossier Snøhetta
Publisher: Arquitectura Viva ISBN: 1697493X Format: Softcover, magazine 80pp, 240x300mm
AV Proyectos 082 devotes its dossier to the Norwegian studio Snøhetta, whose most recent proposals reflect the endless variety of formal resources of the team directed by Craig Dykers and Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, in a search for the "necessary answer" to each specific situation. Designed at their offices in Oslo and New York, their latest projects go from major landscape schemes to small cultural centers, and they all share a concern for the quality of the physical experience of users and look for a coherent insertion in their context. Next, the competition for the emblematic West Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh, where Sou Fujimoto, BIG, and David Adjaye have competed to renew the Ross Pavilion, and which the American studio wHY has won.
