This functional art structure was designed for a small public park as a gathering place for the visitors. The prefabricated pavilion is made of painted sustainably grown wood. The structure is nineteen feet wide, and twenty feet tall. It’s shape was generated from a basic octagon form that was folded out around the perimeter, and at the top. The basic octagon form consists of a support frame onto which the slated wood panels are hinged out and secured into position with steel bolts.
The aesthetics symbolically refer to a large plant or tree, which people can enter and sit on the seven benches that are built into the perimeter of the base of the structure.
