Craig Dykers of Snøhetta to give lecture at NYSID

By jesse


A few weeks ago the D-C staff was lucky enough to attend an event hosted in the offices of architectural firm Snøhetta.  The schmoozing was fairly standard: the space was simply spectacular. I had only a few brief, sycophantic words for the architect and co-founder Craig Dykers, which is why I was so happy to discover I would get to hear him speak without the filter seven Brooklyn Lagers and a dinner of hors d’oeuvres inevitably provides.

The man himself

The New York School of Interior Design will be featuring an illustrated presentation from Mr. Dykers as part of its successful lecture series from industry leaders.  The lecture is entitled “Snøhetta: Works” and will highlight the German-born architect’s multi-disciplinary approach to architecture, interior and landscape design as vital aspects to his creative process.  His ever-expanding highlight reel features such internationally recognized projects as the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in Oslo, the (new) Library at Alexandria, and the September 11th Memorial Museum Pavilion. Snøhetta was also selected to design the expansion of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the re-design of Times Square.

The original Library of Alexandria was the greatest collection of knowledge in the ancient world, but it probably didn't look this good

The lecture will be Wednesday, March 2nd at 6 PM.  It is open to the public and free of charge. Seating is limited and is sure to fill up fast so reservations are required.  You can register by emailing or calling 212-472-1500, ext. 405.  The New York School of Interior Design is located at 170 East 70th Street, between 3rd and Lexington.
