BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Norwegian architect Craig Dykers, one of the most promising young architects in Scandanavia, will present an illustrated lecture of his work Sept. 26 at 5:30 p.m. in 301 Crosby Hall on the University at Buffalo South (Main Street) Campus as part of the fall 2007 lecture series presented by the UB School of Architecture and Planning.

The lecture will be free and open to the public. It will be followed by a reception for the artist.

Dykers is a founding partner of Snøhetta, a global, Oslo-based practice responsible for the award-winning Alexandria Library in Egypt, completed in 2002, and the Norway's National Opera House in Norway, nearing completion.

This summer, the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London, a collaborative project developed by Snøhetta and the artist, Olafur Eliasson, was completed. Dykers is currently working on the design of the museum at the World Trade Center site in New York City.
