Cloud Station

Cloud Station is part of a six architecture research 'Earth Stations' and is an exhibition space for new forms of personal and collective art.

When artificial intelligence frees people from bureaucratic and repetitive chores, it will be necessary to find ways of using this new found freedom and the immense technological potential that will be unleashed. Logical and rational tasks will be substituted by learning machines and big data and as a consequence creative intellects and proactive ideas will be in increasing demand.

The Earth Stations are places that are primed and ready for the programming of the future, offering the environmental and psychological conditions that are perfect for shaping the evolution of the quality of life. They are stations that are connected to the network and constructed in infrastructural nodes enabling them to be easily accessed. They are museums, galleries, offices, theatres, stages, bars, cafés, restaurants, gyms, indoor parks, markets, foyers, workshops, stores and lounges where everything happens simultaneously in a continual combination of diverse interests.

Everything evolves inside. The randomness of encounters initiated by walking, moving and journeying within generates optimal conditions for the most surprising discoveries. In a constant migratory flow, people participate in events and in dialogues, both formal and informal, with artisan and digital workshops and isolation booths for individual reflection.

They are all places of continuous activity with a palimpsest of events that catalyse both attention and energy. In the Earth Stations, everyone can find fulfilment in their own contribution, recognize the value of evolution, enjoy the results attained, set off for new destinations and satisfy the most elemental needs for beauty, justice and happiness.

Cloud Station is an architecture that is as evanescent as the air, in stark contrast to the surrounding city landscape. It possesses an organic and sinuous form characterized by a covering of soft sails. Inside are installation spaces that are scenographically interconnected. The welcoming and friendly atmosphere generates psychological stimuli that foster individual expression and the overcoming of cultural obstacles. Everyone has the opportunity to express their creativity.
