Head In The Clouds - Cloud Pavilion Made of Recycled Water Bottles On Governor's Island

Head in the Clouds is the winning entry to a competition sponsored by the non-profit interactive art organization FIGMENT, the Emerging New York Architect Committee (ENYA), and the Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY). The competition brief reads: “If we imagine a future New York City where anything is possible, what would it look like?" The design and architecture firm, STUDIOKCA created the winning submission based on the idea that a city of dreams needs dreamers, and those dreamers will need a place to put their head in the clouds to dream up great ideas. Installed on Governor's Island, the pavilion is made of 53,780 recycled water bottles (close to the amount thrown away in New York City within one hour). It is a space filled with light as well as music that visitors can enjoy.
