This Cloud House Waters Plants Using Recycled Rainwater

Mar 24, 2017

The ‘Cloud House’ installed in Missouri by artist Matthew Mazzotta is a shed-like pavilion with a cloud-shaped element over it, supported by a pipe. The house, made out of reclaimed wood contains two strategically placed armchairs whose movement is connected to pressure sensors in the floor. 

Movement triggers pumps to transport water from an underground storage tank, which is filled using rainwater collected through hidden gutters on the roof, up into the cloud, which further releases the liquid through tiny holes to stimulate rain. 

Those inside can hear the "warm pleasant sound" of the drops hitting the tin roof, and watch the water permeate through the window lintels to feed plants growing in the sills.
