(3Ders.org)  The world’s largest and most complex 3D Printed installation at this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale is Croatia’s pavilion entitled “Cloud Pergola / The Architecture of Hospitality”. The Pavilion reflects on spaces of hospitality, the environment, automated design, and architecture’s role in the 21st century.
Based on the traditional pergola, the pavilion comprises of three interplaying interventions. The main installation is “Cloud Drawing” by architect Alisa Andrašek in collaboration with Bruno Juričić. The Cloud Drawing installation uses computational models, robot fabrication and big data to create a new kind of spatial structure—an n-dimensional microstructure that brings into dynamic relation natural forces and human intervention. By mathematically capturing the complexity and beauty of cloud formation, the installation “integrates site-specific environmental data into a synthesis of form, figure, posture, tectonics, porosity, and light effect”.
