Craig Dykers, Founding Partner of Norwegian architectural firm Snøhetta, will speak to the unconventional company’s practice of “”the architecture of engagement”” – a phrase coined by the late Ada Louise Huxtable (The Wall Street Journal, 2010). Using past and current architecture and landscape projects as examples, including the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet (2000-08) and the Times Square Reconstruction (2010-15), Dykers will expound upon Snøhetta’s mastery of bringing people together through design.

This lecture is also a part of the ongoing celebration of the 50th anniversary of Mayor Robert Wagner’s signing of New York City’s Landmarks Law, which ushered in a new era of historic preservation for the city.
The Curtis L. Carlson Distinguished Lecture series was created by the Carlson Family Foundation to support public discourse on issues and topics of particular relevance to the people of the United States and the Nordic nations.
