Rainbow Panorama

by Olafur Eliasson

The permanent elevated structure provides a 360º view of the city of århus, denmark. suspended between the city and the sky, the viewing platform insists on the sensory engagement of those who enter it. 

The continuously circular pathway sits on top of and proportionality compliments the ARoS museum of art, designed by schmidt hammer lassen in 2007. measuring 150 meters around, the transparent glass unit is designed to act as a visual compass for the city, its colors marking the physical location of each visitor.  

Representing every color in the spectrum, the design looks to enter into a cohesive dialogue between the exiting architecture and the surrounding city. virtually erasing the boundaries between indoors and out, the encompassing environment aims to question the comfortable limits for which people are accustomed to moving.
