Cloudscapes

Architect Tetsuo Kondo has teamed up with German climate engineering firm Transsolar to fill a closed space with clouds at the Architecture Biennale in Venice. Visitors can experience the cloud from below, within, and above as they climb up 4.3 meter high helical ramp erected in the center of the room. The cloud is based on the physical phenomenon of saturated air, condensation droplets floating in the space and condensation seeds. The atmospheres above and below the cloud have different qualities of light, temperature, and humidity, separating the spaces by a filter effect. The cloud can be touched, and it can be felt as different microclimatic conditions coincide.  The Venice Architecture Biennale continues until 21 November, 2010. SOURCE
