Your Glacial Expectations
The landscape surrounding the Kvadrat Headquarters in Ebeltoft is designed by architect Günther Vogt and artist Olafur Eliasson. This addition is a permanent outdoor installation encompassing five unique elliptical mirrors designed by Olafur Eliasson.
The mirrors resemble glacial basins; they differ in form yet are set in horizontal alignment and positioned amongst trees, shrubs and wildlife. The interplay between an untamed wilderness and serene garden is explored in the conceptualisation of the surrounding landscape. On slight elevations in the broad meadows are small but dense gatherings of trees, clearly delineated in their oval form.
Captured over the course of four seasons, the Your Glacial Expectations book offers a highly detailed into the singular landscape the Kvadrat headquarters in picturesque Ebeltoft, Denmark.
The unique space is documented through photographs by Iwan Baan, Casper Sejersen and Annabel Elston, and through essays and empirical findings by Josefine Klogart and Minik Rosing. Your Glacial Expectation is designed by Graphic Thought Facility and Peter Saville in collaboration with Olafur Eliasson and Günther Vogt.
The book is published by Thames & Hudson and available for purchase on thamesandhudson.com.
