Craig Dykers receives Honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from North Carolina State University

May 13, 2019

Founding Partner Craig Dykers was recognized with an Honorary Doctor of Fine Arts at North Carolina State University's Spring 2019 Commencement, Saturday, May 11.  NCSU Chancellor Randy Woodson conferred honorary degrees on Dykers and Ginni Rometty, CEO of IBM. 

The doctorate serves in recognition of Dykers' achievements in the architectural field and impact on the university through Snøhetta's design of the James B. Hunt Library. Opened in 2013, the building set a new benchmark for technologically-sophisticated collaborative learning spaces. It is designed to be a decisive competitive edge for the university by democratizing access to the technologies driving our economy. Following the completion of the Alexandria Library in Egypt, the Hunt Library was Snøhetta's first built library in North America, earning accolades within the architectural and library professions, and influencing the thinking behind the needs of the contemporary research library.
