Serenity in Reykjavík

By Linda Tancs

There’s a hill called Þúfa (also known as Thufa) in Reykjavík, Iceland. It was designed by the Icelandic artist Ólöf Nordal, who intended it to be a place of serenity and meditation. Unlike other public art in the capital, this is a 26-foot-tall, grass-covered dome. It’s topped off with a hut, historically used to wind-dry fish, as a nod to Iceland’s fishing heritage. Þúfa is located in Grandi, a trendy part of the city in the northeast, within walking distance from the downtown area.
