In this book, the impressive building and structural setting of the Nordjyllands Art Museum becomes fully appreciated. Designed by Elissa and Alvar Aalto and Jean-Jacques Baruël, the buildings housing the collections enable visitors to experience the unique and always changing combination of space, lighting and weather. The works of art have optimal conditions in these light, sublime and flexible rooms. Though the succession of enthralling photographs by internationally acclaimed Hélène Binet form the nucleus of the book, it also includes essays on the history of the museum, the interplay of light within building, as well as a presentation of initial sketches for the building.
