About Kjetil Thorsen

Kjetil Trædal Thorsen was born on the Norwegian coastal island of Karmøy. He studied architecture in Graz, Austria. When he completed his studies in 1985, he co-founded the office Snøhetta with his founding partners Craig Dykers and Christoph Kapeller. Today, Snøhetta has grown to become an internationally renowned practice of architecture, landscape architecture, interior architecture, product- and graphic design, with more than 240 employees from 32 different nations.

The studio has completed a diverse range of international prize-winning projects, including the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt, the National Norwegian Opera and Ballet in Oslo, and the National September 11 Memorial Museum Pavilion in New York City. The practice places experience at the center of their design process, for a design that engages the senses and physicality of the body while fostering social interaction.

Virtual Feedback Cards for the Speaker

Dear viewer,
Maybe you have never attended our events, but perhaps know this already. Your effort is required! As the speakers share many of their personal experiences with us, we would like to present them a special gift, now digitally.

Please write into the text box below what you enjoyed most about the talk. Our goal is to present each speaker with personal feedback cards, as we do at our events. At our events, we collect the cards right before we start with the round-table-discussion and hand them over in a box at the end of the event.

Please participate! Our speakers love it and we want to continue with this tradition.

Here, we will collect the messages and forward them via e.mail to our speaker:
