Founded in 1989 as a consortium of architects and landscape architects, Snøhetta today has 200 employees in two main studios in Oslo and New York and offices in San Francisco, Innsbruck and Adelaide, working on a wide range of architecture, landscape design, interior design and brand design projects worldwide.

What unites Snøhetta's projects is their approach to architecture as a built landscape, a landscape that defines an architectural space that also articulates itself socio-politically and opens up possibilities.

This philosophy is also recognizable along the Nordkette Perspectives Trail: the architectural elements, made of Corten steel and larch wood, develop out of the landscape, but at the same time form striking points of contrast to the surrounding topography.

The purpose of these elements is to provide visitors with different perspectives on the landscape through targeted movements or to stimulate social interaction and bring users into contact with each other.

The Perspective Trail won the BIGSEE Award in March 2020.
It has been nominated for the 2020 award in the "Landscape Project" category on the Dezeen platform.
