Architecture: A giant inflatable canopy created by the brilliant Snarkitecture

Posted by James Cartwright,

An oldie but a goodie here from US-based architects and installation designers Snarkitecture. Tasked with creating an entrance pavilion for Design Miami 2012, Alex and Daniel produced an array of giant inflatable cylinders, grouped together in an undulating pattern to produce a unique topographical landscape above the viewer’s head. The cylinders fill in the entire courtyard space and are then lifted to create a clean, white cave with natural light leaking through the apertures between each form. There’s also giant grey worms to recline on in the middle providing a perfect breathing space among the chaos of the main fair.
