Cloud City

Cloud City Aalborg is an art project to be built at the old distillery at the port of Aalborg.
The art structure is gigantic and approx. 30 meters high, 44 meters long and 27 meters wide, a steel and glass structure where you can walk through and experience it from the in- and outside.

The structure will be connected to the existing old factory building, which provides access to the new project via the top floor. The artwork “sculpture” is close to the harbour promenade, with a view of Nørresundby. The project will be the Art Center's permanent main attraction and physical landmark. The structure is artistically designed by the artist Tomas Saranceno at Studio Tomas Saraceno GmbH in Berlin. Clients consultant is Niras.
