Head in the Clouds
This art pavilion by STUDIOKCA on Governor’s Island (New York) is the winner of the ‘‘City of dreams Competition’’ and it is already in process now. It is sponsored by the American Institute of Architects New York (AIANY), the Structural Engineers Association (SEAoNY) and the not-for-profit Arts Organization, FIGMENT. With the help of volunteers, hopefully it will be finished in the summer of 2013 for several planned events. It consists of 53780 recycled bottles, which is the number of plastic bottles thrown away in New York in just 1 hour ( 48.000.000 plastic bottles thrown away in the whole US every day!). Every bottle is filled with a small amount of organic food coloring. Visitors will be able to sit inside the cloud and contemplate the shifting light as it filters through the layers of bottles.
