Cloud Forests appeals to adults as an art installation. For children, this pavilion is a play area. Installed on open terrain, it is surrounded by concrete walls with openings for windows and doors. The installation consists of three elements: pink, flexible rods grouped in varying density that emerge from the ground, aluminium wires that are suspended high up between the walls, and white balloons, which rest on top of them. When children run through the installation and touch the rods, the movement is transferred to the balloons.
Statement by the Jury
This pavilion is fascinating not only for its interactive design but also for the sensory art experience it provides.
