American artist Doug Aitken has installed a ranch-style house clad in mirrors in the snow-covered alpine mountains of Gstaad, Switzerland.
The Mirage Gstaad, located in the snow-covered mountains of Gstaad in Switzerland, is a single-story structure whose exterior, as well as interior, is entirely covered in mirrors. Modeled after the rant houses in California built between the 1920s-1930s, it also draws similarities to Frank Lloyd Wright’s modernist houses.
Visitors can freely explore the mirrored structure, which has an open door. The interior is also mirrored to create a kaleidoscopic refracted effect on entering the house.
"The viewer can come back to the piece as the seasons are changing, in fall in a storm or in the summer when it's a green pasture. As our lives change the artwork is shifting with us."
