Snøhetta Nominated with Two Projects for the Prestigious Mies van der Rohe Award 2022

Feb 03, 2021

We are excited to share the news that two Snøhetta projects, Swarovski Manufaktur and the Outdoor Care Retreat, have been nominated for the prestigious European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2022!

As a crystal workshop for the 21st century, Swarovski Manufaktur is as much a top-notch production facility as it is an innovative creative hub providing Swarovski with new opportunities to work together with customers.

The Outdoor Care Retreat is a secluded wooden shelter aspiring to make hospitalization easier for patients and their families. Located only a short walking distance from one of Norway’s largest hospitals, it offers visitors a physical and psychological respite from stringent treatment regiments and the isolation that often follows long-term hospitalization.

The Award “must support the rethinking and replanning of Europe in such a way that it prioritises the environment through a cultural project in which design and sustainability are indissociable.” 

We look forward to following the nomination process further!
