The shape of the Cloud originates from a plastic movement in space that is frozen in time, a still image capturing an instant of a volume in motion. The Cloud’s form is continuous and soft, its curvaceous, seductive and yet intriguing. It was designed to be seen both from inside and outside, so it turns on itself revealing a convex curved surface to the exterior while embracing the interior space of the pavilion with its internal concave shape.
The cutting edge design techniques used in our process allowed defining continuous curved surfaces, which respond to varying modeling forces, which result in the final gesture of the cloud, as a liquid mass emerging from the ground and free-floating in space. The surface treatment is of a highly polished gloss, as the Cloud displays at the same time that it reflects its environment, it becomes a witness of the space and it inhabitants. The cloud reflects its surroundings as it reacts to it.
