Kolonihavehus

3

New York artist Tom Fruin’s Kolonihavehus installation in Copenhagen. The 12x12x14-foot frame incorporates roughly a thousand of pieces of reclaimed plexiglass, ranging from 2×2 to 24×36 inches in size.

Standing in the Royal Danish Library Plaza, the sculpture takes its inspiration from Copenhagen’s kolonihavehus, which were originally small garden sheds intended to provide impoverished city-dwellers with some refuge from urban conditions.

Tim’s Kolonihavehus, on the other hand, proved to be a beautiful attraction, with a computer-controlled light sequence by Nuno Neto, a sound installation by Astrid Lomholt, and a collaboration with performance company CoreAct.

The Kolonihavehus 

Artist Tom Fruin. This outdoor sculpture shaped like a house, but looks more like an ultra-modern stained-glass cathedral. The 12x12x14-foot frame incorporates roughly a thousand of pieces of reclaimed plexiglass, ranging from 2×2 to 24×36 inches in size.

Standing in the Royal Danish Library Plaza, the sculpture takes its inspiration from Copenhagen’s kolonihavehus, which were originally small garden sheds intended to provide impoverished city-dwellers with some refuge from urban conditions. Beside that, it proved to be a beautiful attraction, with a computer-controlled light sequence and music. 

Pretty lights and bright colours always seem to attract me, so no wonder this did.
New York artist created this outdoor sculpture Kolonihavehus in the plaza of the Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen. The ‘mini house’ is made from a thousand reclaimed pieces of plexiglass.  
I think its cute, seems sort of magical, could be the new style shed at the bottom of our gardens?

Artist Tom Fruin went a long way from home—from New York to Copenhagen—to build a house. Actually, it’s an outdoor sculpture that is shaped like a house, but looks more like an ultra-modern stained-glass cathedral. The 12x12x14-foot frame incorporates roughly a thousand of pieces of reclaimed plexiglass, ranging from 2×2 to 24×36 inches in size.
