Olafur Eliasson recent projects


Olafur Eliasson’s practice is characterised by his incessant exploration of our modes of perceiving. Described as ‘experimental setups’ by the artist himself, his works span from photography to installation, sculpture, and video. Established in 1995, his Berlin studio today numbers about fifty craftsmen, architects, geometers, and art historians. In the studio, he deploys light, color, and natural phenomena such as fog and waves to test how physical movement, engagement of the senses, and the interaction of body and brain influence our perception of our environment.

Some of his recent projects done in Rhino and Grasshopper include KIRK KAPITAL A/S Headquarters and Harbour Island in Vejle (Denmark) and Façade for Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference Centre (in collaboration with Henning Larsen Architects).

I think the Kirk Capital project looks really beautiful. It reminds me of the work of Guadi in Barcelona a little bit.
