Olafur Eliasson Model Room

Olafur Eliasson’s work Model room (2003) is a landscape of geometric models and objects, started in 1996 and created by the artist in collaboration with the Icelandic mathematician and architect Einar Thorsteinn. Over the years, Model room has evolved into a three-dimensional archive, a collection of materialised ideas, of which the more recent have been developed and implemented as installations, pavilions and monumental projects. Olafur Eliasson says: ”Model room” is most of the models created for my artworks over the last two decades – realised and unrealised – into a new artwork. It is as if nearly every thought I had in my studio during that time now lives in the urban landscape that is Model room. In this sense, it holds the very DNA of my work in a generous, spatial archive, and I consider it a centrepiece of my artistic oeuvre.
