Studio Other Spaces

Studio Other Spaces is an office for art and architecture established by artist Olafur Eliasson and architect Sebastian Behmann in Berlin in 2014. As the architectural counterpart to Studio Olafur Eliasson, SOS and its works, such as Meles Zenawi Memorial Park in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and Ilulissat Icefjord Park in Greenland, grew out of the collaboration between artist and architect.

At Studio Other Spaces, we pursue an experiment-based approach to the production of space that seeks to expand the practice of architecture. Our involvement begins from the earliest situation and extends into the reality of the built project. This website reflects our belief in such a holistic practice of architecture: You can either view our work through perspectives – which include the multiple influences and trajectories of a project – or by projects. These two approaches contain the same work, presented in different ways.

Previous multidisciplinary projects by Olafur Eliasson and by Studio Olafur Eliasson, such as Fjordenhus in Vejle, Denmark, and Facades of Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Iceland, are included here as predecessors of and influences on the work of Studio Other Spaces.
