The Head in the Clouds Pavilion will be installed this summer on Governors Island!
STUDIOKCA won the City of Dreams Pavilion Competition through FIGMENT (the community based art organization that has exhibitions across the US, including an art festival on Governor’s Island every summer). The competition asked participants to design a 50 person gathering space to imagine the city of the future in the most sustainable way while considering the entire life cycle of the building materials used in the submission. STUDIOKCA’s selected design- Head In The Clouds is composed of 40,000 empty water bottles on the inside and 13,780 empty gallon jugs on the outside. These bottle counts are based on the amount of plastic bottles thrown away in NYC in 1 hour!
Head In The Clouds is a place dedicated to dreaming, where visitors can lose themselves in both the cloud-like structure, as well as the clouds in the sky around them. Please join FIGMENT, STUDIOKCA, ENYA, AIANY, and SEAoNY to celebrate the 2013 City of Dreams Pavilion this summer on Governor’s Island!!
