"Cloudscape" at Venice Biennale Combines External and Internal Environments

Japanese studio Tetsuo Kondo Architects and environmental engineering firm Transsolar have suspended a cloud inside the Arsenale exhibition space at the Venice Architecture Biennale.

Called Cloudscapes, the installation is created by pumping three layers of air into the space: cold dry air at the bottom, hot humid air in the middle and hot dry air at the top. A spiral walkway guides visitors up through the layers to emerge above the cloud, before they descend back down through the vapour to the floor. The installation forms part of the exhibition People Meet in Architecture, directed by Kazuyo Sejima of SANAA.

US Pavilion's Airy Balloon Canopy at Venice Biennale 

The US pavilion at the 2010 Venice Biennale featured an installation by design team MOS entitled "Instant Untitled." It consists of a canopy of giant globular silver helium balloons and an interlocking white seating unit. MOS mentions that Instant Untitled has a small carbon footprint, in fact, that it barely even exists. Calling it an urban figment, it is a light and sustainable response to the apparent absurdity of modern architecture. This type of architecture is like diet-architecture, a copy without the calories.
