Walk through “Your Rainbow Panorama” in Denmark

Walk through “Your Rainbow Panorama” in Denmark

Now reaching the rainbow became possible with the new installation named “Your rainbow panorama” of the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. The new project was opened on the 28th of May 2011 on the top of the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum in Århus, Denmark. Permanent circular vivid walkway of a 150 meters long, 3 meters wide by 3 meters high, gives a 360° colorful view of the city. Eliasson’s creation is 52 meters in diameter (approximate weight of 140 tons), mounted on the 12 columns which are resting on the steel construction on the roof level (around 100 tons). This artistic work stands over 50 meters above the street level and 3.5 meters above the renovated roof area, it is also available for recreational purposes with a spectacular city view, all interested can reach both roof terrace and panorama via stairs and elevators.

The glass forming the rainbow has all the colors of the spectrum giving visitors a different feeling to their familiar city, bringing brightness to the regular landscape, reminding us of some childhood dreams of walking through the rainbow. It’s visible from a far distance and it lights up at night which makes “Your rainbow panorama” a new colorful landmark to the city.

Olafur Eliasson describes his design concept: “Your rainbow panorama enters into a dialogue with the existing architecture and reinforces what is assured beforehand, that is to say the view of the city. I have created a space which virtually erases the boundaries between inside and outside – where people become a little uncertain as to whether they have stepped into a work or into a part of the museum. This uncertainty is important to me, as it encourages people to think and sense beyond the limits within which they are accustomed to moving.”

    Very neat. What a novel way to view the city. They should build a few of these around the world.

    This thing is pretty cool, but the surrounding area including the building it is on is extremely ugly.
