Like a raven, Icelandic director Hrafn Gunnlaugsson has collected shiny things and discarded scrap metal on his oceanside property in Reykjavik, creating a makeshift sculpture garden. The garden and home are consistently evolving and incorporate new finds, such as a rusted-out buoy eyeball and rebar cross, into the surreal landscape.

Know Before You Go

You can explore the property at Laugarnestangi 65 across from the (more traditional) Ásmundur Sveinsson Sculpture Museum.
