Bird-Watching center Tåkern Lake, Sweden - Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Traditional building techniques were employed to cover the walls and roof of the building with golden reeds, which will fade to grey over time to to match the nearby bird-watching tower.

art museum

"We directed new route for visitors to zigzag between the inside and outside of the space. With the characteristic space of old Japanese wooden house, we worked on amplifying the image of his works and scenery of the garden by setting black, transparent glasses and mirrors. Among these special setting, red glass have technically a key to lose information of colors and change the other end of world into monochrome view, This also means the boundary between “life and death” and “ordinary and extraordinary ”, which in fact, he uses the color of red as an symbol for life. When you are about to start your journey in the museum, you notice the red stones in the garden visually disappear its existence. As you go inside and pass through the main house, you encounter the garden with its original color. Looking from the main house, the garden looked gloomy by distinct functions of different color of glasses. Across the river flowing under the main floor, you’ll finally encounter 227.3×546 cm of his three works,”Primitve universe”. This is also reflected in the black floor glass, and overwhelms visitors before they know it."
