Testuo Kondo architects create a cloud you can walk through

Every wondered how it would be to touch and feel a cloud? I did. In cooperation with Transsolar the Tetsuo Kondo architect group created an installation for the Museum of contemporary art in Tokyo. The group is normally responsible for very “light” constructions of buildings which are flooded with light.

The six meter high installation allows visitors to experience a walk through the clouds. It’s made possible by creating three different climate-zones into the cube which recreate the perfect humidity for a very comfy cloud. Accourding to the time and weather the look and feel of the cloud is constantly changing in reaction to the humidity and air pressure. Amazing project and currently open for all visitors of the museum.

If you’re currently in Tokyo or planning a visit – include a stop at the Museum of contemporary art on your to-do-list.

Update: Thanks to Adam we know know that this was a time wxclusive exhibition which was held back in 2011/2012. Too bad this is not around anymore.
