Cloud City: An urban ecosystem is a sculptural rendition of Chris Bosse’s vision of a future city - a soaring, stretched membrane cloud anchored to the ‘city’ on the gallery floor by high-rise towers that have been re-skinned and revitalised. A series of large circular forms, doubly curved, is made of stretchy lycra.
The installation is part of a nation-wide exhibition by 12 Australian designers that explores the potential of design in our lives and generates ideas that could ‘change the way we inhabit the world’.
