White Little Clouds for the Picnic
You don’t tell people where to have a picnic. Usually lights and shadows define the perfect location.
ABC Serrano’s Picnic Experience is already a classic event in Barrio de Salamanca (Madrid). The roof top of the building gets ready for the summer, letting all neighbors in to enjoy a little dinner and watch the sunset.
We were asked to distribute the space, but seriously, since when should people be told how to colonize nature? Nobody should do that.
In order to manage the different areas required, and also as an act of common sense (sun burns like hell in the summer), we decided to let people decide between light and shadow.
And, how can we generate this dual situation? Easy, we’ll hang a few “little white clouds”. A patterned texture, generated by flipping up and down a pre-defined system of paper-tiles.
