Panoramic Rainbow Walkway Illuminates ARoS Museum
Imagine what it would be like to live inside of a rainbow. That is exactly what Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has created in his rooftop installation, “Your rainbow panorama.” Positioned atop ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, a 10-story art museum located in Århus, Denmark, the elevated walkway yields a spectacular 360-degree view of the city.
Made entirely out of glass with panels in every color of the spectrum, the rainbow installation’s walkway measures 150 meters (492 feet) around. It’s also visible from a great distance throughout the surrounding area, acting as a multicolored compass for those navigating Århus both during the day and at night when spotlights installed in the floor light it up from inside. The project, as Olafur Eliasson explains, inspires a rich dialogue between visual arts and architecture.
