Globale / Transsolar + Tetsuo Kondo: Pulled by the Roots, Die Stadt ist der Star, 2015, by Leandro Erlich; © Studio Leandro Erlich

Exhibition, ZKM Atrium, Karlsruhe, Germany, until 27 September
A cloud inside the ZKM! As a prelude to the exhibition Exo-Evolution, Stuttgart-based Energietechnik Transsolar, together with Japanese architect Tetsuo Kondo, have produced an artificial cloud in the ZKM interior spaces. The project combines many years of experience in the sphere of climate engineering and architectural know-how: by applying cutting-edge technologies, not only is climate engineering made visible, but ways are also shown in which human beings will become capable in future of exercising greater influence on natural phenomena with increasing effectiveness.
