    "Kolonihavehus" by Tom Fruin (image credit: Nuno Neto)

"kolonihavehus" by new york-based artist tom fruin in collaboration with coreact is an outdoor sculpture consisting of a thousand pieces of found plexiglass. located in the open riverfront plaza  of the royal danish library in copenhagen, denmark, the installation largely resembles the form of a simple house clad in a vibrant and complex skin of plexiglass squares and steel framing, offering a visual and lighting effect close to a stained glass window.  the house is fully constructed from hand-cut and hand-welded steel picture frames which have been arranged to hold a single piece of found plexiglass ranging in size from 2x2 inches to 24x363 inches. the frames are welded into 35 individual panels which can be bolted together to wrap around the metal structure. a pivot mounted door and several operable windows complete the 14th feet house.
