Completely portable, the Kolonihavehus can be dismantled into its component parts and transported in a van. The door is mounted with handmade pivot hinges, while operable windows keep it from overheating. A light installation mounted in the space below the roof lights up the pavilion at night into a candy-colored lighthouse and during the day the interior is swathed in bright colors.

The design for the sculpture was created by architect J.D. Messick and the computer controlled light sequences were designed by Nuno Neto. Daily performances exploring the concrete poetry of Denmark’s own Vagn Steen will take place in front of or inside of the sculpture until it is taken down in mid-November.
