There will be no external environmental loads from wind, rain or snow but a small degree of prestress and accurate patterning are required.

This project was entered in the 2013 LSAA Design Awards (Cat 1, 1567)

Entrant: LAVA

Location: Casula Powerhouse, Casula NSW

Client: Object Gallery

Completion Date: July 2013

APPLICATION OF PROJECT:

Cloud City: An urban ecosystem is a sculptural rendition of Chris Bosse’s vision of a future city - a soaring, stretched membrane cloud anchored to the ‘city’ on the gallery floor by high-rise towers that have been re-skinned and revitalised. A series of large circular forms, doubly curved, is made of stretchy lycra.

The installation is part of a nation-wide exhibition by 12 Australian designers that explores the potential of design in our lives and generates ideas that could ‘change the way we inhabit the world’.
