floating cloud cities – tomás saraceno


Tomás Saraceno has created these incredible inflatable environments entitled Cloud Cities for the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin (ends 15 January 2012); a unique and alien world that you can enter into and explore.

The installation consists of 20 levitating inflatable domes suspended from the ceiling, which are big enough for visitors to climb into and for an experience that must be like floating. Defying our concepts of gravity, the installation allows viewers to float in space – a truly surreal experience that challenges traditional roles of architecture.

These Cloud Cities are ‘biospheres, organic dimensional meshworks that hover in the room, sometimes adorned with plants, sometimes simply suspended by black nets,’ explains Saraceno.
