INFRAWIND & METACLOUD is a double language. “Poetic”, it sublimates the project of the architects of the Institut Mines-Télécom building in Palaiseau. “Meteorological”, he draws a map of welcome and orientation towards convivial spaces. INFRAWIND & METACLOUD’s weather map, inspired by the motifs of the cloud, the compass rose and the barbule, extends over the 55,000 m2 of the building. A range of “Barbules” furniture (tables, benches, stools) can be found in the convivial spaces. A series of enamelled plates, of different sizes, take place in the building: 6 monumental clouds in the atrium, 6 wind roses and 176 geodetic orientation plates.
