Wolfe Center for the Arts

Snøhetta partner to share insights on architecture

The campus community will have an opportunity to hear from one of the creators of the University’s Wolfe Center for the Arts when Craig Dykers, a principal in the award-winning architecture firm Snøhetta, comes to campus as the next speaker in the architecture program’s yearlong lecture series.
Dykers will speak at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 28 in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union Theater. A reception will be held at 5:30 in the adjacent lounge area. His talk and the reception are free and open to the public.

The Wolfe Center will be the first American project to be completed by Snøhetta, a Norwegian company with projects from Europe to the Middle East. A Snøhetta-designed opera house recently opened in Oslo, and the firm has been chosen to design a new cultural center for the king of Saudi Arabia.
