Raum Architects shared with us their recent project titled 'Neither Cloud nor Rock', an art installation for the National Institute of Agricultural Research in Nancy. The piece covers an exterior area intended to people who work there, opposite to the restaurant. It protects researchers from rain and sun. The object floats, clinging to the trees, and moves with them. More images and architects' description after the break.

Neither cloud nor rock, the folding is driven by the environment and connects the object to life on the campus, offering a lightweight shelter without any foundation, and proposing a new living situation inside the clearing.
