Insulation II

After the post about Tropical Islands featuring a gigantic, encapsulated amusement park, a smaller-scale "insulation" example: Haus-Rucker-Co was an Austrian group of architects and artists known for their use of inflatables in temporary installations and projects. Shown in this video, the '68 Gelbes Haus (yellow house) was a pneumatic structure for two people elevated from the ground, while in '71 with Ausstellung Cover (exhibition cover), the group covered the Haus Lange in Krefeld, built in '21 by Mies van der Rohe, with a white, pneumatic dome.

Recently, Raumlabor produced the Küchenmonument (kitchen monument), a sort of living-pod which traveled through many German cities in order to host temporary public events like conferences or collective cooking and dining, a mobile public space insulation.
