The LAVA Centre sits between five of Iceland's greatest volcanoes. The main exhibition, designed by Basalt Architects and Gagarín, reveals the epic forces of nature that shape our planet and created Iceland. Visitors get a crash course in volcanology while experiencing the extreme forces associated with volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
Powering the Future is an appealing new destination, en route to the UNESCO heritage site ﬁingvellir, and located on the banks of the Sog river, where the water that fuels the power station is a present and powerful force.
At a museum dedicated to the wrath of a 1973 volcano, interactive experiences help visitors explore the site and make peace with the worst natural disaster in Iceland’s history. The project was an Honor winner in the 2015 SEGD Global Design Awards.
The Eldheimar Volcano Museum is dedicated to one of Iceland’s biggest natural disasters: the Heimaey eruption of 1973. Interactive experiences designed by Gagarin encourage visitors to be "protagonist explorers" rather than passive consumers of information.
