Watching the City through a 170 Feet Glass Rainbow

The newest artwork in Denmark’s ARoS museum wouldn’t make much sense anywhere but the roof: Your Rainbow Panorama stretches 170 feet across, offering visitors a 360 degree view of the surrounding city in dazzling technicolor.

Your Rainbow Panorama, a work by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson, is slated for completion this Fall, treating museum visitors to views that will look something like this:

But it might look even more spectacular from ground level:

The walkway will measure 9 feet by 9 feet and the steel supporting it will weigh, in total, over 200 tons, which means that this rainbow is requiring some serious construction.

Thanks.
