“Passing Cloud” by architect Tiago Barros is a design concept for a giant cloud-shaped balloon aircraft made up of a bundle of spherical balloons. The aircraft would harness prevailing winds to leisurely transport passengers on random journeys around the United States.
This project envisions a distinct approach towards moving around the United States being also a revival of the act of traveling. Why traveling at high speed? Why having the final destiny always defined? And why always departing and arriving on a tight schedule? Nowadays, everything is set and everyone is always running around. It is time to reconsider the act of traveling and start enjoying it accordingly.
