Minsuk Cho of architecture firm Mass Studies installed a temporary pneumatic pavilion along the western edge of the Ferril Lake in Denver's City Park. The roughly 10,000 sq ft structure called 'Air Forest' was designed to be a floating public square. The installation is composed of 9, 4m high hexagonal canopy units, interconnected to create one large piece inflated by 14 blowers.

Gorgeous! How long will this be up? I'm going to have to get down there before it's gone!

Hmm, nevermind. I found that it was installed for the DNC.
