elisasson’s large rooftop walkway measures 52 metres in diameter and is constructed from a color spectrum of glass which runs around its entire perimeter. when complete, ‘your rainbow panorama’ will measure a distance of 150 m, providing visitors to the ARoS århus kunstmuseum a 360º view of  the city of århus, denmark.
