Spotlight: Snøhetta Architectural Design Firm From Norway

This weekend I posted some info about SFMOMA getting ready for its makeover to become the largest space for public art in the country. Snøhetta, the Norwegian firm who nabbed the museum's expansion plan design, has created (or is in the process of pitching more concepts for) some of the most visually arresting architecture across the globe. Most notably, the National September 11th Memorial Museum Pavilion in New York and Busan Opera House in Korea (photo above).
