The Cloud Sanctuary rehabilitates patients suffering from eco-anxiety through passive treatment using thermal power and clouds to address emotions of sadness, fear and anger. The theme of the proposal is to slow down, in order to ground ourselves from the fast paced physical world by paying attention to clouds and changing atmosphere.
Three parts complete the scheme, the first being ‘The Cloud’ itself. This is a landscape of changing atmosphere temperatures powered by geothermal energy and varying density outlets and size, ranging the levels of pressure released. The second is ‘The Operation’ building which modelled to mimic the turbulence of being inside of a cloud. This building is also geothermally powered so is 100% renewable, as it is important that the building not contribute to the climate crisis. The final part which completes the scheme is the bridge which purposely forms the longest route between buildings to emphasise ‘slowing down’.
