David Chipperfield Architects and artist Antony Gormley have designed the Kivik Art Centre in Österlen, Sweden. The concrete structure consists of three parts with equal volumes: an enclosed space in the base, an open viewing platform further up and a tower with spiral stairs leading to an 18m high viewing platform.
Gormley says: "I see the work as a meditation on the status of sculpture and architecture and their respective relationships with light, mass and space using the material most associated with modernity: concrete."
Kivik Pavilions is a project that combines architecture with art and design. Fundamental are issues of environmental solutions, a symbiosis of the landscape and the pavilion, and corporate partnership with industries in the region. The latest pavilion was created by architect Petra Gipp and visual artist Runa Islam in 2011
