Paper Cloud

Montpellier, France

Studio 3A

Festival des Architectures Vives 2017


Shinjuku-ku, Japan, 2017-07-20 –

Paper Cloud elaborates a space of illusion and delusion.

This phenomenal environment is filled with light and shadow by reflecting various colours in different times. Visitors are responding to these sequential changes through the tactile sense. Their bodies are therefore linked to the space and become part of the installation.

Paper Cloud is composed of about 2,000 pieces of plastic laminated paper rings assembled without any bolts or glue but simply by slotting them into each other.

This simply assembled monochromatic paper structure contrasts with the massiveness of the stone pavement and walls in the courtyard. However, once stepping inside the installation, this cloud-like structure merges with light and its existence seems to disappear like bubbles.

This intangible experience provoked by the illusion of light and shadow awakes the visitor’s emotion.

About Studio 3A

Studio 3A is a collaboration unit of 3 architects from
Japan, Germany and Mexico identifying their own cultural backgrounds and sharing mutual awareness towards architecture and societies.
3A’s approach is to carry simultaneous investigation and study in macro / micro scale to understand its surrounding contexts and culture. Urban complexity of the site and the human factors in tangible materials are to be explored in various scales. They have developed series projects with the idea of Arts and Crafts embedded in the manufacturing processes by
adopting traditional craft technique and local materials.
Through these architectural interventions, sensitivity
towards the tactile qualities in architecture and materiality is fundamental.
