The Kepler Star, or the Peace Star, is a 45 meter high art installation close to Oslo Airport, designed by artist Vebjørn Sand. It is located close to the road where the European Route 16 meets European Route 6 at Gardermoen Business Park.
In 1999, the artist Vebjørn Sand was asked to create a landmark in the planned industrial park at Gardermoen. Sand got the idea for the Kepler star and says this is a symbol and a vision that draws the threads back into cultural and spiritual history - and forward to technique and aesthetics. The star was first constructed by 16th-century by the astronom Johannes Kepler, as a further development from the Ikosa Seder, one of Plato's 5 geometric bodies consisting of 20 triangles.
A spetacular land mark close to the main airport in Norway - Oslo Airport.
