“Under” – Europe’s First Underwater Restaurant

Snøhetta has designed a proposal for an exhibition space to showcase Hilma af Klint’s greatest paintings in Kristallen Kunsthall in Järna, Sweden.

Hilma af Klint was a Swedish artist and anthroposophist whose paintings were considered a visual representation of complex spiritual ideas, and her work has been exhibited in several countries. 

Some of her most famous paintings are ten paintings called, “The Great Ten”, which represents the four life cycles of humans: childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age. Snøhetta designed an exhibition space that would be a permanent home to these paintings when they are not exhibited elsewhere.
