Air Architecture

"In the end it is an old dream of mankind and of the imagination to play with the elements of nature, to direct and to control their phenomena and manifestations. (...)
Yves Klein’s walls of fire and water are, along with the roofs of air, the materials for the construction of a new architecture.
With the three classic elements – fire, air, and water – the classic city of tomorrow will be constructed and will finally be flexible, spiritual, and immaterial.
The idea in space, of using pure energy as a material for construction for mankind, no longer seems absurd in this order of thinking.
Yves Klein, excerpt from « Overcoming the problematics of Art », 1959
