voussoir cloud is a site-specific installation by architecture firm iawamotoscott in collaboration with buro happold and SCI-arc students. voussoir refers to wedge-shaped blocks which are generally used in curved architectural elements such as arches and vaults. in this case, the team constructed the wedge-like shapes out of featherweight, paper-thin wood laminate to create the vaulted installation. the lightness of the materials used appears heavier than the actual weight of the structure, creating a conflict within the confines of the gallery space. the piece uses old construction techniques combined with modern day materials and digital processes to create the porous structure.
