“There’s one particular method we use, and that’s before the actual designing starts. We make an in-depth analysis. Sound architectural work requires a high level of expertise. At Snohetta we try to do a thorough job before we start the actual design.”—Kjetil Tredal Thorsen, Snohetta (via henriettebacker)
Dutch architect Herman Hertzberger believes passionately that architecture can help bring people together. The Royal Institute of British Architects has just awarded him the 2012 Royal Gold Medal, given in recognition of a lifetime’s work.
