Doug Aitken’s mirrored Mirage house installed Swiss mountains above Gstaad

American artist Doug Aitken has installed a ranch-style house clad in mirrors in the snow-covered mountains of Gstaad, Switzerland.

The single-storey Mirage structure, so called because it reflects the surrounding landscape and disappears into it, is covered top-to-bottom in mirrors.

The structure will remain in its mountain location for two years “reflecting and interacting with the mountain landscape over the changing seasons”.
