Steilneset Memorial to the Victims of the Witch Trials

Peter Zumthor and Louise Bourgeois

Vardø, Norway
In the pavilion Zumthor designed for Louise Bourgeois’s installation, Cor-Ten steel columns and brackets support tinted glass panels and a Cor-Ten roof. In the center is a rough concrete tub containing an aluminum chair. Gas-fueled flames shoot up from the chair seat, reflected by seven oval mirrors on columns encircling it.
