Tethered Cloud

Architects Sebastian Messer and Taylor Grindley and artist Stephen Newby are creating a new work for Kielder Waterside.

When finished in spring 2020, the project will offer visitors a new sheltered space from which they can enjoy the lakeside and scenery around Kielder Waterside visitor centre. Thethered Cloud will be made from large upright timber sections surrounding a raised area with various formal and informal seating options.

The 'Cloud' itself will be fabricated as an inflated stainless steel three-dimensional form with an opening through its centre that frames the sky.
