The Virgolo/Virgl mountain in Bolzano, Italy has been practically inaccessible to visitors for almost forty years, following the close of the city’s historic funicular in 1976. This is about to change - The SIGNA Group hosted an international design competition for a new cable car transit system, allowing visitors to experience the beauty of the surrounding landscape and city below with only a minute ride on a cable car. Snøhetta was awarded first prize in the competition and the commission.
Aesop recently opened its second Berlin signature store, on Fasanenstraße in the city’s West. Created in collaboration with Snøhetta, the design for the 93-square meter space was inspired by the historical context of the neighbourhood. Taking cues from several performing arts institutions nearby, including Theater des Westens and Berliner Schaubühne, the interior subtly alludes to the trappings of theatrical drama.
Portland, Oregon, renowned for its exceptional food culture and host of local farms, breweries, and restaurants, has been missing one key element for decades - a flagship public market to showcase the best of Oregon. The city’s historic Portland Public Market closed its doors 1942. To fill this void, community members formed the non-profit James Beard Public Market to restore a daily, year-round, indoor-outdoor marketplace in the heart of the city. The James Beard Public Market commissioned Snøhetta, in collaboration with local partners, Mayer/Reed, SERA Architects, Studio Jeffreys and Interface Engineering, for this ambitious civic hub, transforming a neglected and underutilized site in Downtown Portland into a center of community, commerce, and activity.
