About this artwork

Landform creates a visual link between the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art's Modern One building and Modern Two, which is situated directly across the road. The work is a combination of sculpture, garden and land art: a striking backdrop to events at the Gallery and a platform for viewing the gallery's outdoor sculpture collection. The shapes of Landform are inspired by nature, where they can be seen in waves, clouds and geological formations. The work also has a social function, as visitors can walk and sit on the terraced paths. Landform won the Gulbenkian Prize for Museum of the Year, 2004.
