Casalgrande Ceramic Cloud by Kengo Kuma, Italy

This wonderful project of architecture designed by the Japanese master Kengo Kuma, a ceramic tile structure called "Casalgrande Ceramic Cloud". The monument is situated in front of the tile manufacturing headquarters in Padana, Italy.

 "We were asked by the world wide known ceramic tile maker Casalgrande Padana to create a monument for a road roundabout in front of their facilities' entrance.
Being able to work with such a capable manufacturer, we took the challenge of involving the ceramic tile as an architectural element itself, avoiding its conventional use as a mere cladding. Just after developing with Casalgrande Padana's team the specific detail of how to panel and connect their standard ceramic tiles, we understood the possibilities of how to assembly and organize them creating different structures. ..." Kengo Kuma said.
 The white of the ceramic tile paired with the transparency of the overall structure create an ambient effect that speaks to the project’s nickname of “cloud,” though said nickname not entirely obvious if one is looking for a round, fluffy architectural installation.
