More than 50,000 recycled bottles form New York cloud pavilion

Head

A total of 53,780 recycled bottles, the number thrown away in New York City every hour, have been used to create a pavilion in the borough of Brooklyn.

The cloud-shaped structure by architecture and design firm New York-based  StudioKCA, was named one of the winners of the American Institute of Architects’ Small Projects Awards.

Head in the Clouds project was designed for a summer exhibition  in response to a brief calling for a “place to dream in the city of dreams”, which the designers interpreted by creating a space where visitors could “contemplate the light and colour filtering through the cloud from the inside, out.”
