Artificial clouds: A wonder for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games

Two years from now and the city of Sochi will host the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia. During the event you might witness the wonder of artificial clouds, designed by Asadov architectural Studio. It was originally conceptualized for the Aerostatic architectural competition in 2010 and you can now see the light like modular clouds floating through the Olympic city.

The underlying technology of the project is based on a universal system of modules that can be grouped and separated at high altitudes. The basic structure of the clouds is supported by an aluminium fitted by a fabric membrane chassis.

 For the stable vertical movement, the clouds have connected rigidly with each other.
The lower parts of the modules define funnels of rain, which they accumulate moisture and can make to pour down as rain. The upper layer is integrated with solar elements, that will be the solar energy that can be used for lighting, as well as life support.

Emotion on the various scenarios that clouds will be different uses is quite prominent. They can be used to cover forms of park or accommodate VIPs in the areas of skiing mountain, etc.. Once the Olympics are done with the 'clouds' can be used in the streets of the canopy to various festivals, remaining integral for entertainment in the city of Sochi.
