Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse

Nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award 2017.

Ferocious pounding storms constantly move and shape the fantastic dune landscape on the Northwest coast of Denmark. In 1968 an enormous sand dune devoured Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse leaving the tower as the only remaining structure, poised on the edge of the rapidly eroding cliff.

In Spring of 2016 the lighthouse was reopened and retrofitted with an architectural installation that gives the public the last chance to enjoy the unique vistas and wild dynamic spectacle of nature, from the top of the lighthouse.
