The ideal of aerostatic architecture is life beyond the clouds.
We offer universal system of modules – “clouds” which, gathering in “flight”, are capable to form under covered foot spaces.
With reference to the Olympic complex in Sochi there can be some scenarios of their behavior:
– a longitudinal arrangement over foot parkway
– circular placing over the Olympic area
– tribunes for VIP-persons and the press in mountain ski area
Besides, there is a set of variants of Postolympic use of “clouds”:
– a beach “tuchek-canopies” – a source of a shade and a cool rain
– an overlapping of city streets for festivals with elements of “media show” on the bottom surface of “cloud”
Also “clouds” have variety of accompanying functions directly onboard — from a walking promenade to minicafe, spa-center, minihotel or even mobile loft.
“The cloud” design consists of the easy aluminum skeleton fitted by a membrane fabric, divided into a number of compartments. Rigid connections between “clouds” stabilize their vertical movings and give stability to all structure. Lifting on “transcendental” height is carried out by means of the platforms-boats available on each module and moving on cables tense from the earth by means of an electric crab.
“Clouds” actively cooperate with environment: set of rain funnels accumulate a moisture in the bottom part which then can “drop out” like a rain or even to be an alternative source of a firefighting. The solar elements integrated into the top layer of a cover, develop the necessary electric power for life-support, and also illumination in the evening. Besides, there is a separate type of “cloud” – the air turbine.
The similar approach to possibilities of aerostatic architecture allows though a little to come nearer to a required ideal — «life beyond the clouds»…
