Hunt Library lead designer attracting acclaim in key publications

The Oslo Opera House

In one week alone, Snøhetta, the Hunt Library’s lead designer, has garnered high-profile articles in two of the most influential magazines in the US.

Snøhetta has been chosen to, in effect, redesign New York City’s Times Square, and The New Yorker has published a feature on the architects’ goal of “using architecture to alter a city’s relationship to itself.”

In turn, The New York Review of Books–in response to a new book about Snøhetta’s Oslo Opera House–has produced a review of Snohetta’s impact on modern architecture to date.  The Oslo Opera House, the article concludes, “has given the Norwegian capital one of Europe’s most enjoyable and instantly beloved public spaces of the past half-century.”

The Hunt Library comes with quite a pedigree!
