normal The Black Cloud by Heather and Ivan Morison

A temporary pavilion of scorched timber by artists [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] opened in Bristol, England last month.

Called The Black Cloud, the project is named after a novel by Sir
Fred Hoyle about a giant gas cloud in space that threatens to block out
sunlight and end life on earth.

The structure, which is composed of 152 uniquely-shaped timber triangles, was designed with architect graduate [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and commisioned by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] at the University of West England.

It will host programmed events by local residents and visitors.

The structure will remain in place until 6 December.

The Black Cloud
Heather and Ivan Morison: The Black Cloud
Victoria Park, Bristol
25 July to 6 December 2009

From dawn till dusk on Saturday 25th July, artists Heather and Ivan
Morison led a crew of volunteers to build a remarkable temporary public
artwork for Bristol’s Victoria Park. The pavilion‐like timber
structure, The Black Cloud, was commissioned by Situations at the
University of the West of England, and designed in collaboration with
architect graduate Sash Reading. It will act as a meeting point,
performance stage and shelter for events and performances during its
time in the park over the next four months.

The design is based on the Shabono shelters of Venezuela, which
combine an exposed communal zone in the centre with sheltered living
space around the periphery, and a permeable threshold into the
surrounding jungle. The Black Cloud takes these abstract qualities into
a new form with a triangulated timber structure that appears to be
animated in its light interaction with the park. The form was resolved
by taking a geodesic dome, removing the top and deforming the shape
into a structure that provides varying degrees of shelter, height and

The result is a structure of 152 unique triangles that take on the
lifelike character of a giant insect. The timber facade, sourced from
the artists’ arboretum in Wales, was treated using a Japanese scorching
technique, to create a dark, protective shield. The Shape of Things to
Come. Barn‐raising the Black Cloud was the first of three events
initiated by the artists which involved raising the structure on 25
July, using local volunteer assistance alongside skilled labour. The
arrival of the shelter was celebrated through communal feasting and
music, reflecting the traditional Finnish talkoot and Amish
barn‐raising, as well as den‐building workshops and story‐telling.

The Black Cloud will also be open for use by park visitors, local
residents, groups and organisations throughout its temporary residency
in the park. Combining a radical architectural intervention and a
programme of events and performances which re‐imagine our responses to
potential economic, social and environmental futures, The Black Cloud
is proposed as a pioneering model for commissioning public art in
parks. The title The Black Cloud is based on a novel by Sir Fred Hoyle
in which The Black Cloud describes a large dark body of gas that
prevents solar radiation reaching the earth, later found to be a
sentient superorganism.
