Building that reflects the beautiful surroundings

January 25, 2012
Fed up with frequent graffiti, a Danish architectural firm has come up with a novel way of protecting a playground from vandalism.The mirror pavilion in Copenhagen’s Central Park, Denmark, features an eye-catching array of different mirrors designed to distort the building’s surroundings.

The centre, used by visiting kindergarten classes, was plagued by graffiti and town hall officials turned to architects MLRP after failing to stop the damage.Thanks to clever use of distorted mirrors, curved mirror doors and invisible entrances, the building reflects the parks surrounding gardens and can even seem to disappear entirely as a result of the optical effect.

At night, the mirror windows and doors are concealed behind shutters.The project is the first of three developments in the park by MLRP, which also includes a twisted rope footbridge and a revamped traffic playground area.
