The Energy and Information Science Pavilion is a conceptual proposal for a science center that symbolically celebrates, and informs us about the collection and dissemination of energy and information from the rest of the universe to the surface of the earth. This would include the latest atmospheric science as well as that of the cosmos. The design of the center of the structure is based symbolically on various energy and information gathering and disseminating devices. In this case, rainwater is collected at the center and stored for use in and around the pavilion. Also solar energy is collected around the perimeter of the cylindrical shaped center core where it is converted to electricity and used to partially power the structure. Many other atmospheric and cosmic information gathering and dissemination sensors are built into the design of the pavilion. This real time information is used to generate a variety of ongoing graphic displays on the inside of the pavilion. Radiating out from the base of the center structure is a large network of branches that symbolically refer to the flow of energy and information into the earth. Both art and architecture, the Energy and Information Science Pavilion was designed to continue the dialogue about how art and architecture can merge together in new and exciting ways.
