The Three Falling Chairs Pavilion is a proposal for a public art architecture/sculpture to be made of painted steel or wood. The total form is created by three large symbolic chair structures (joined together side by side) that appear to be falling backwards, and as they do this, each leaves a trail of movement through time and space that is frozen into twelve segments. Each of these twelve segments form three arches that span the space below. Eight human scaled symbolic chairs (of the same design as the large chairs) are placed under the canopy for use by the visitors to the pavilion as seating.
This project conceptually explores ways in which furniture can symbolically and functionally become architecture or sculpture. It also plays with ways in which the symbolic movement and crystallization of objects through time and space, can form totally unexpected and exciting new forms of architecture and sculpture.
