The Aurora Borealis Arctic Observatory is almost as beautiful as the natural phenomenon that inspired its conception and possible construction. Although it boasts a sleek and futuristic aesthetic, the lines of the design are as soft and undulating as the lights projected in the sky. Not to mention that it blends into its wintry setting perfectly.
Designed by Jensen Liu and Sally Hsu, the Aurora Borealis Arctic Observatory is meant to be built between the mystical occurence of the northern lights and the urban landmark of Rovaniemi. Designed to to capture and enrich this priceless sighting, it was greatly influenced by the awakening moment of the Eos (the goddess of dawn), which is meant to enhance the lights.
