In 1989, when the small and newly founded Norwegian architecture studio won the prestigious competition to design a new library in Alexandria ahead of 526 other submissions, the architecture scene hardly knew about the three young guys of Snøhetta. Meanwhile Snøhetta is one of the most successful and awarded practice in the world and 20 years after their big breakthrough the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo dedicates a comprehensive exhibition to this year’s Mies van der Rohe Award for European Architecture winners.
