This year’s architecture exhibition is entitled ‘People Meet in Architecture’ and runs from 29 August – 21 November at the Giardini and at the Arsenale, as well as various other venues in Venice. Created by German climate engineering firm Transsolar and Tetsuo Kondo Architects, the indoor cloud lies within an 800m2 space in the Venetian Arsenal (Arsenale di Venezia). In a similar vein as the Blur Building by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the aim of Cloudscapes is to provide a space where visitors can experience the characteristics of clouds on a personal level: from below, within and above. The artificial cloud is produced by the visualization of the nearly 100% humidity in the cloud layer through a series of smoke machines, which create condensation seeds that render the cloud visible.
