Tasked with creating an installation to spark dialogue at Design Miami this year as part of the W Hotel's "Conversation Pieces," Asif Khan took the anti-architecture route, using helium, soap and water to make a mini-cloud cover indoors. Khan explains it as "an architectural experiment into what’s the simplest way to create a shaded space where conversations can happen.”
