New York Firm Designs 'Cloud' of Recycled Plastic Bottles

Non-profit art organization FIGMENT asked the question “What would an art pavilion made out of recycled materials and based around the idea of "The City of Dreams" look like to you?"  STUDIOKCA decided that it looks like an earthly cloud made of recycled water bottles; "A place to dream, in the 'city of dreams'."

This competition-winning cumulus, entitled 'Head In The Clouds' is campaigning to be the central pavilion at FIGMENT’s free art festival on Governor’s island in NYC this summer. The cloudy-centerpiece will contain a stage for events and provide a place for the 200,000 festival-goers to dream and contemplate the changing light.

The international studio Urban Art Projects (UAP) transformed a standard parking garage into a large scale “art-come-architecture project” on Albert Street in Brisbane. The art project entitled ’Landlines’ is a contour map of the area that wraps itself around three faces of the 9 floor parking garage.
