Sculpture at Under

Location (see map):
Lindesnes, Norway



Installation date:


Under was designed by Oslo-based architects Snøhetta for local hoteliers Stig and Gaute Ubostad. It is a semi-submerged restaurant in the North Atlantic Ocean and is 34m long. The concrete walls of the building are half-metre-thick to withstand demanding sea conditions and also to encourage marine life. The building acts as a restaurant, an artificial reef and a research centre. As part of the artificial reef aspect of this project, Jason deCaires Taylor installed a sculptor in the surrounding seabed viewable from the restaurant.

Commissioned by: Stig and Gaute Ubostad
Materials: pH neutral cement
