Julie Snow in Conversation with Andrew Blauvelt


Flash must be enabled to see the video player.

Julie Snow discusses the work of her Minneapolis-based firm. A Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, Snow is known for her refined sense of materials, elegant detailing, and multidisciplinary curiosity. Her work ranges from industrial facilities and cultural institutions to private residences and even a dog collar. Fresh from the critical acclaim of the new Museum of Russian Art in Minneapolis, which involved an adaptive reuse of a former church on Diamond Lake Road, the firm is at work on several other projects, including a new entry commons for Breck School, a U.S. border station in Warroad, Minnesota, and a renovation strategy for the Soap Factory, an artists space in Southeast Minneapolis. Past projects include designs for light-rail stations in Minneapolis, the Humboldt Lofts and Park Avenue Lofts along the Mississippi riverfront, and the Koehler Residence, a double-glass box dwelling in New Brunswick, Canada. Julie Snow Architects recently named Connie Lindor and Linda Morrissey as partners in the firm and saw the publication of its eponymous monograph by Princeton Architectural Press.
