Center City Park Pergolas & Pavilion in Greensboro, NC by Touloukian Touloukian Inc.

July 31st, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Shade Pergolas and an Outdoor Pavilion for performance and community gathering are designed for an urban park in North Carolina. The form and structure reference the heritage of the local textile industry – its patterned fabric and the motion of the textile loom equipment. Purple heart wood, painted steel, copper sheet metal, brick, granite, and silicon bronze donor plaques are assembled with standard details in unique combinations to create a tailored pattern and image bound to its place.
