Speaking of the Venice Biennale, I couldn’t resist briefly mentioning Cloudscape, which creates a cloud in the inteior of the Arsenale. Visitors can walk below, through, and above the cloud on a walkway that could easily be mistaken for a section of the Rolex Learning Center in the above photo (by Emanuela Ascari). ┬áThe installation is a collaboration between Transsolar climate enginners and Tetsuo Kondo Architects. If you’re a fan, you may want to watch the interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist. If you’re interested in similar projects, I suggest the Blur Building by Diller + Scofidio as well as the Olafur Eliason exhibition at the Kunsthaus Bregenz.
