Cloud House shed

Cloud House by conceptual artist Matthew Mazzotta combines a shed with a clever rain harvesting system - rain is collected in a storage tank underneath the shed and is then pumped up to the cloud when anybody sits on one of the rocking chairs inside. It then falls as rain on the tin roof, making a nice sound and watering the edible plants on the windowsills. Here's what Matthew says:
"This display of the water cycle illustrates our dependence on the fragile natural systems that grow the food we eat: at points throughout the year when there is low rainfall, the ‘cloud’ will not rain on the roof because it is simply out of water."
