Faulders studio has designed the ‘Entrium Light Cloud’ for a permanent installation at Portland State University. The composition of contours blends a gridded arrangement of aluminum fins with circular focal point geometries to create a pattern evocative of, ‘vectorial weather flows, topographical contours, wave oscillations, and amorphous cellular clusters,’ as described by California-based architect Thom Faulders.

The sculpture seeks to engage the perception of students, faculty, and public visitors passing by, and also create a threshold space which links the outside world with the intellectual activity inside the building.
