cloudscape Living in the Clouds: Cloudscape Made From Recycled PVC

The Cloudscape looks like a wonder world, quite like the one seen in fiction and cartoons where everything is fluffy and soft. This is an installation by the Bjarke Ingels Group and was installed at the P.S. 1 Young Architects Program design competition. While the shape may not be an exact reminder of the clouds, the design pretty much does its job well.

The installation is all air, contained in recycled PVC structures. And it sounds quite fun, the installation had three parts; a bubbly dune, a three-dimensional cumulus landscape and a cluster of free floating cirrus clouds. Extending from the entrance to the courtyard in a continuous form, the installation provided a complete landscape that had water, light, shade, playgrounds, a bar and areas for relaxing.

All air filled installation could be easily deflated and stored. Since it is more of an entertainment design and likely to suffer quite a lot of wear and tear, it is only sensible that the materials used can be recycled. The design won the first runners-up prize at the competition.
