French-born and Los Angeles-based artist Francois Perrin’s new project “Air Houses” explores how can architecture adapt and evolve to address the challenges posed by brisk climatic changes globally.

The artist’s, fabric-clad “Air House” installation hoisted above the palms at Chicago's Garfield Park Conservatory, seeks to reconnect architecture with climate-responsive designs of the past that are no more visible courtesy the advent of air conditioning, notes The Spaces.

The geometric structures are fabricated from a silvery textile, which the artist claims, bounces the light away, cooling off the air beneath by about 6 degree Celsius, writes Tree Hugger
