From the architect. The Cloud Room designed by Shanghai-based architect Bing Bu sits on the roof terrace of the National Art Museum of China, a historical landmark from the 1960’s in Beijing.

The outside white polycarbonate panels follow a computer generated cloud-like profile. Each piece revolves according to the wind, casting moving shadows and reflections onto a second layer of translucent polycarbonate. Standing inside, people can think of this cloud room as an apparatus of urban observation or meditation – the translucent interior screen gives a mix of vague pixel urban image intertwined with wind and sun.

This Beijing installation can be a starting point of a sequence of works. As the exhibition is travelling to Taiwan this summer, The Cloud Room is expected to transform and to dialogue with the mild and warm environment of Taichung.
