Where does the sky begin? What shape is the sky? What colour is the sky?

The sky is probably the most undefined and open landscape we can ever imagine. It's the black surface where the stars appear as small lightning points. It's the clear blue environment where the sun shines. It's the rainy day where the sky falls over us until the horizon gets orange, red and violet.

The aim of my proposal is the creation of a space interacting with the sky. A space that has no colour but the colour of the sky. A space interacting with the wind flow.

To develop my project I have been investigating into two sky concepts which are transparency and weightlessness.

Tranparency:
The sky does not have a specific colour. Whilst we consider it as clear and blue it's in fact a superposition of millions of transparent ozone layers becoming blue by the accumulation in the distance.
I created a pavillon which imitates this principle by installing multiple small transparent PVC pipes which can reflect the lightning of the sky and adapt the same colour. I have left big spaces between the pipes to increase transperency.

Weightlessness:
The pavillon gives the impression of being suspended in the air with an almost invisible structure. As the pipes do no touch the floor, the wind has the effect of moving them in any direction and at once showing the spectator the stage of the sky at this unique moment.
