The pavilion in the fjords of Greenland

They look like ice blocks, but they are glass blocks. This is the Qaammat Fjeld pavilion built by Konstantin Ikonomidis between two fjords in Sarfannguit, Greenland.

The place is a UNESCO heritage site and also for this reason this public installation tries to intervene “on tiptoe” in the surrounding landscape. It does so by using a transparent material and placing the context in which it arises at the center of its function. The glass blocks are placed so that the visitor can best grasp the landscape views appropriately enhanced and framed.
