Launched in 2000 as an official project of the White House Millennium Council, the National Design Awards are bestowed in recognition of innovation and impact and seek to increase national awareness of the impact of design through education initiatives. Nominations are made by the general public, and winners are selected by a diverse jury of design leaders and educators. Snøhetta is known for its trans-disciplinary approach, integrating architecture, landscape, interior, graphic design and product design into its projects.

“Snøhetta was established on the belief that we can go further if we go together, and we have a long way to go,” said Craig Dykers, founding partner. “In a year such as this one, where we’re facing many challenges in the field of design and in the world at large, we’re honored to receive the National Design Award and be recognized for our achievements in sustainability and socially-conscious design. With this award, we feel empowered to continue to push the envelope of what great design can do.”
