The Sámediggi building was awarded the State Architecture Prize in 2001. According to the jury: ”The architects behind the Sámediggi building have – in cooperation with the developer and advisers – managed to unite a modern building programme with Sámi building tradition and culture in a worthy and at the same time unpretentious structure, in poetic harmony with the local conditions provided by nature.

Finnmarksvidda has acquired an inspired and inspiring place of assembly. The Sámi Parliament building will be an important element in the future development of Karasjok and a symbolic building for Sámi architecture and identity. The building represents an important contribution toward promoting good building traditions.”
