By invitation from curator and architect Christina Capetillo, LETH & GORI and Reiluf Ramstad Architects presents a 1:50 scale model of the Diatoms Fur project at Vrå-Udstillingen 2017 (Vrå Exhibition) in North Jutland, Denmark.
The model itself represents the creation of the Danish landscape by the slow stratification of 40 layers of tracing paper into a modulating landscape of hills, valleys, moraines and cliffs. A landscape formed and carved by the fjord on one site and shaped by man quarrying for Diatomite sedimenton on the other.
On top of the landscape flows thee sculptural objects carefully placed to emphasize specific sites relating to the history or nature of the site.
The project is one of ten projects in Realdania and Naturstyrelsen’s campaign ‘Steder i Landskabet‘ [Places in the Landscape] celebrating ten unique places in the Danish landscape.
In the Vrå Exhibition, Christina Capetillo has invited four different landscape projects, all situated in North Jutland, in order to open for a new dialogue about landscape, authenticity, and man’s influence on not only our built environment but also the surrounding open landscape.
Diatoms Fur is the result of a successful collaboration between LETH & GORI and Reiulf Ramstad Architects.
