According to the Design Miami blog, "As an architect-designer, Asif is always experimenting with novel materials and structures, and lately he's been testing the idea of using foaming bubbles as an architectural element."

Says Khan, "Cloud is a work of experimental architecture: a floating roof made simply from helium gas, water and soap; an instantly deployable canopy for conversations in the shade."

"I believe that in the future architecture will be light, intelligent and simple - like clouds. The Cloud experiment is about beginning that process to discover the future of architecture. Maybe we can carry a building in our pocket?"
