BERLIN.- An ambitious, highly illustrated, monograph on Olafur Eliasson’ s large-scale projects over the past 20 years, by the artist and his studio.

Studio Olafur Eliasson Unspoken Spaces is the first major book on Olafur Eliasson’s architectural projects and works in public spaces around the globe.

The book explores, often in Eliasson’s own words, the artist’s driving interest in finding visionary shapes to represent abstract ideas, and presents an extraordinary visual journey through spheres, tunnels, towers, walkways and archways, as well as pavilions and larger buildings realized by Eliasson and his studio since the late 1990s.

Eight essays by writers across a variety of fields – from geologists and historians of art and science to architects, artists and philosophers – give further insight into the work of Olafur Eliasson.

Works in Studio Olafur Eliasson Unspoken Spaces range from small-scale experiments to large- scale projects in the public realm, among them striking buildings such as The Serpentine Pavilion 2007 in London (with Kjetil Thorsen), Your rainbow panorama (2006–2011) in Aarhus, Denmark, the crystalline façades for Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Reykjavik (2005–11), and Cirkelbroen (The circle bridge) in Copenhagen, Denmark, 2015. Each work is presented with vivid photographs and accessible in-depth project descriptions as well as Eliasson’s more personal statements.

Studio Olafur Eliasson Unspoken Spaces includes a range of Eliasson’s creations – ‘reality machines’, as he calls them – many of which have never appeared in print. A section of the book explores unrealised and unfinished projects.

The contributing writers are Alex Coles, Lorraine Daston, Carol Diehl, Eric Ellingsen, Caroline Jones, Timothy Morton, Molly Nesbit, Terry Perk and Minik Rosing.

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson (born 1967) works in a wide range of media, including installation, painting, sculpture, photography, film, and architecture. Since 1997 his critically acclaimed solo shows have appeared in major institutions around the world. Eliasson lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin.

Eliasson established Studio Olafur Eliasson in Berlin in 1995 and this has grown organically from a small group into a team of about eighty people, who all work with Eliasson to turn artistic ideas into reality. (olafureliasson.net). In 2014, Eliasson and long-time collaborator Sebastian Behmann founded an international office for art and architecture, called Studio Other Spaces, to focus on interdisciplinary and experimental building projects and works in public space.
