Dartmouth College has chosen Snøhetta as the lead architect for the expansion and redesign of the College’s Hopkins Center for the Arts, a vital creative hub for Dartmouth and the New England region. Snøhetta was selected for its integrated transdisciplinary approach and extensive experience designing arts facilities and cultural spaces - including the expansion of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, Shanghai Grand Opera House, and the pedestrianization of Times Square.
While continuing to honor the Hop’s original architecture, Snøhetta’s upcoming renovation and expansion will address growing needs and demands of students, faculty, and the surrounding community. The reimagined spaces will give room for exploration among the arts. With the creation of three new recital halls and teaching studios, substantial upgrades, and the incorporation of state-of-the-art technologies, Snøhetta will create public spaces for social engagement and encourage cross-curricular connections at Dartmouth.
