Heinz Mack: The Sky Over Nine Columns

Architecture, Venice 29 Jan 15

As part of the Venice Architecture Biennale Heinz Mack installed nine golden columns on the  island of San Giorgio Maggiore. The installation is made up of nine identical columns, decorated with over 850,000 shimmering golden mosaic tiles intended to reflect the light of the sun and moon. It’s quite something on a sunny day.
