Olafur Eliasson and his Berlin-based studio work with staggering range, be it installation, architecture, sculpture or photography. As the projects have grown in size, so has the team, and in 2014 Eliasson and long-time collaborator Sebastian Behmann founded Studio Other Spaces, an international office for art and architecture in order to work on experimental building projects and public installations. From realising small-scale experiments to answering full architectural briefs, Studio Olafur Eliasson’s ambitious output includes the 2007 Serpentine Pavilion and Cirkelbroen (the circle bridge) in Copenhagen.
A new book dedicated to his architectural projects shows Eliasson’s many creations, some of which have never appeared in print. In his own words and through essays from geologists, art historians, architects and artists, Unspoken Spaces explores the Danish-Icelandic artist’s interdisciplinary practice in the public realm, and looks at his striking buildings and the tunnels, towers and walkways his studio has conceived throughout Europe.
Studio Olafur Eliasson Unspoken Spaces is published by Thames & Hudson and is available from 18 April.
