Artificial clouds

In the 2014 Winter Olympics held in Russia, the weather might seem nicer due to  the new artificial clouds being made.  The clouds, named Clouds, were designed in the 2010 Aerostatic Architecture Competition by Asadov Architectural Studio.
            The Cloud’s aluminium skeleton is filled with a membrane fabric and is split into different compartments for different uses, such as a waterproof ceiling and a light source.  The energy gathered are from the daytime from solar panels on the roof are used for the light at night.  If needed, Clouds can also cool the air with rain collected from when it rains.  Clouds are connected with rigid strings for vertical stabilization. 
            This invention could improve the experience of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia and also could be mass produced for parks, playgrounds, and other outdoor areas.
