Snøhetta selected as winner of the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Competition 

Sep 18, 2020

Following an extensive selection process, Snøhetta has been unanimously selected as the design architect of the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library! This announcement completes a months-long process that culminated in a design competition between Studio Gang, Henning Larsen, and Snøhetta. 

Snøhetta’s design for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library is informed by the President’s personal reflections on the landscape, his commitment to environmental stewardship, and the periods of quiet introspection and civic engagement that marked his life. The design of the Library is more than a building; it is a journey through a preserved landscape of diverse habitats, punctuated with small pavilions providing spaces for reflection and activity. The Library’s gently sloping roof looks to the northeast, gazing over the National Park, historical settings in the Little Missouri River valley, and the Elkhorn Ranch far in the distance, further connecting the Library of tomorrow with its origins in the past.
