Kjetil T. Thorsen (2014)
As a founding partner of Snøhetta, Thorsen is striving for a continuous state of creative reinvention. Collaborative processes are embedded within the complexities of each individual and will therefor always rely on the singular (person) in the plural (group) to become truly collaborative. The logical consequence of this assumption is that the most important project for “Snøhetta” (the architect firm) is “Snøhetta” itself.
Kjetil Trædal Thorsen has led several award winning design competitions for public buildings around the world. As head of the inovative team at the “Snøhetta” design and architecture firm – he has among others designed the museum built for the Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, the 2007 Serpentine Gallery temporary Pavilion in London, Bibliotheca Alexandrina library in Alexandria – Egypt, and the new Oslo Opera House and many more.
