From the banks of the Canal Saint Martin, the “Cloud” is invisible. To see this strange cloud-shaped and resin-made white wooden hut first created in 2010 for a biennial of contemporary art, head towards Paris’ Pont Ephemere (10th).

A work of contemporary art and an ecological habitat to test for a night between  April 26th and May 15th, the “Cloud” was created as a mountain refuge, which can host 7 people, with 3 double beds and one single one. Each building located in the municipalities of the metropolitan area has a unique design, with six shelters installed in the Bordeaux area which can be reached when hiking.

In Paris, visitors can sleep in the clouds for one night only (with free access, upon reservation) before the Cloud itself gets blown away towards the Bordeaux area for the summer.

In the calm atmosphere of the banks of the Canal Saint-Martin, the terrace of the Pont Ephemere offers panoramic views over the water and a bamboo garden encircling your cloudy home. If not for a night in, at least go have an informative look of this airy creation.

7 places available each night from April 26 to May 15
