"I’m an architect, and I’ve designed buildings all over the world. Every time I get a commission in an emerging market, I get excited about the opportunity to draw from the country’s heritage, culture, and art. But the client never wants it. They all want the same thing: ‘modern style, modern style, modern style.’ Everything has to be high and glassy. It’s almost as if everyone wants to hide their differences. It’s boring."

This is the latest prototype of the Cloud.  The internal structure is made of plexiglass plates and rods to support the honeycomb sheet material. 

Eleven students from the studio are participating in a Special Studies course to design a public art installation with Aki Ishida and Ico Bukvic. Follow our work on Tumblr.
