The candidate will work with the marketing and communications team to research, record and archive information about the Snøhetta’s built projects. The primary goal of this position is to improve the office’s knowledge with quantifiable data about the transformational impact of our designs, then communicate this information in an effective way for the office, our clients, the public and the media to better understand our work.

Responsibilities will include conducting online research; conducting interviews with internal staff and users of the spaces; recording and archiving facts and important articles. Additional responsibilities may include administrative work and archiving as needed based on the deadlines and workload of the team.

About the Company: For over 20 years, Snøhetta has designed some of the world’s most notable public and cultural projects. Snøhetta kick-started its career in 1989 with the competition-winning entry for the new library of Alexandria, Egypt. This was later followed by the commission for the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo and the National September 11th Memorial Museum Pavilion at the World Trade Center in New York City.

Since its inception, the practice has maintained its original self-defined trans-disciplinary approach, integrating architectural, landscape and interior design in all of its projects. We are currently working on a number of civic and cultural projects internationally including the expansion of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in California, the Far Rockaway Public Library in Queens, New York, the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts in Kingston, Ontario, the Ryerson University Student Learning Centre in Toronto, and the redevelopment of Times Square in New York City.

Among its many recognitions, Snøhetta received the World Architecture Award for the Bibliotheca Alexandrina and the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, and the Aga Kahn Prize for Architecture for Alexandria Library. Since its completion in 2008, the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet has also garnered the Mies van der Rohe European Union Prize for Architecture and the EDRA (Environmental Design Research Association) Great Places Award, as well as the European Prize for Urban Public Space, The International Architecture Award and The Global Award for Sustainable Architecture in 2010.
