Designed by Brooklyn-based firm STUDIOKCA, a giant pavilion made out of thousands of plastic bottles was constructed on Governors Island as part of FIGMENT NYC.

‘Head in the Clouds‘ officially opened to the public over the weekend, built by the firm and more than 300 volunteers from the Emerging NY Architects Committee, the Structural Engineers Association of NY, and the FIGMENT arts organization, and from all over the city.

The pavilion was made from 53,780 recycled bottles, which is the amount thrown away in NYC in one hour. It is a space where visitors can view the light and color filtering through the “cloud.”
