The Glass Bubble is architecture, sculpture and paradise compounded. It meets the challenges of an extreme site 'on reclaimed land, in an emerging urban environment, exposed to salty winds, cold winters and hot summers' by becoming a membrane of intersecting biotopes, simultaneously opening and closing the u-shaped court yard of an existing building. It introduces a rounded shape amongst a multitude of angular ones. It serves as an architectural vehicle for multiple experiences and uses at all times of the year. The Glass Bubble is constructed with flat crystal clear low-iron glass that lets a maximum of light into the climate controlled interior garden with its exotic plants. The floors inside and outside, and the low walls of the flower beds, are made with a Norwegian shale rich in iron, Otta Högseter, that changes in colour between blackish green and rust. On dark nights the Glass Bubble becomes a protruding volume of light on the edge of Malmö's Västra Hamnen.
