Snøhetta was selected as the winner of the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Competition. Selected from three shortlisted proposals in the last step of the contest, including Studio Gang and Henning Larsen, the winning project “is informed by the President’s personal reflections on the landscape, his commitment to environmental stewardship, and the periods of quiet introspection and civic engagement that marked his life”. Snøhetta has been unanimously selected as Design Architect for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in North Dakota. The team will work with a local based architect to deliver the final project. More than a building, the 15th American Presidential Library will share T.R.’s legacy with future generations. In fact, the design of the Library “is a journey through a preserved landscape of diverse habitats, punctuated with small pavilions providing spaces for reflection and activity”. With a gently sloping roof facing the northeast, the library of the future is further connected to its past. Moreover, it overlooks the National Park, the Little Missouri River valley, and the Elkhorn Ranch.
