Studio Other Spaces, founded by artist Olafur Eliasson and architect Sebastian Behmann in 2014, created the Vertical Panorama Pavilion for The Donum Estate in Sonoma Valley. The conical structure acts as a space dedicated to tasting wine, enabling a contextual and unique encounter between senses and surroundings.

The beautiful construction consists of 832 glass pieces arranged around an oculus that opens to the north. The Vertical Panorama Pavilion claims to “enable a unique encounter between our senses and our surroundings”. The design for the pavilion creates a “holistic experience” through its natural surroundings and breathtaking view.
