These rock stars of Scandinavian architecture will be featured in “Snøhetta: architecture-landscapes-interiors,” opening Feb. 4 at Scandinavia House: the Nordic Center in America. The exhibition will feature 11 projects by the Oslo firm, which places equal emphasis on architecture, landscape and interiors, and which is known for its innovative, environmentally conscious designs. Founded in 1989, Snøhetta won raves for its Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Alexandria, Egypt, which was completed in 2001, and since then has amassed a project list that includes the iceberg-like New Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in Oslo (completed in 2008); the Ras Al-Khaimah Gateway Project, an undulating composition of buildings planned for the United Arab Emirates; and the National September 11 Memorial Museum Pavilion in New York. Until April 3 at 58 Park Avenue.
