An Elliptical House
Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson’s latest project is a building in Vejle, Denmark. Studio Other Spaces, the architectural arm of Eliasson’s studio, alongside longtime collaborator Sebastian Behmann, have created the brick structure in a fjord for the company Kirk Kapital.
Dubbed Fjordenhus, Eliasson’s building is an elegant, palatial structure half-submerged in water, connected to the city’s harbour by a walkway. Cylindrical structures stand at 28 metres high, with sections carved out to create an intersecting, curved building.
