The Solar Energetic Pavilion is a proposal for a large public art sculpture made of steel tubes, and fifteen large solar cell arrays in the shape of four-foot diameter disks. The eight foot three and a half inch diameter steel tubes are all bent into six-foot radius curves, and connected together to form the main body of the sculpture. Each of the curved sections of tubing are placed together end to end and rotated to various degrees relative to one another, before they are fixed into longer curved sections. These long sections are then attached with bolts at their intersections, in order to form the abstract curvaceous shape of the pavilion. Fifteen of the long curved sections of tubes are terminated into a vertical position above the rest of the structure, where the solar arrays are mounted. Each of the fifteen solar arrays are also connected at their bases to sun tracking motors so the disk shaped solar cells can follow the sun throughout the day. The electricity generated from the sun through the solar cell arrays is used to light the pavilion at night, with the excess electricity used by the community in which the structure is installed. The conceptual design of the Solar Energetic Pavilion originates from a symbolic visualization of energy patterns associated with the conversion of light energy into electrical energy. It also refers to a large plant with leaves that convert sunlight for use by the plant through the process of photosynthesis.

The Picnic Pavilion is a functional art structure designed to provide a very special place in which to have a picnic. It is made of sustainable grown painted wood and is approximately 12 feet wide, 12 feet long, and 14 feet tall. Its shape was derived from multiplying and shifting five entryway silhouettes from each of the four entryways, up into vertical canopies. Four separate square platforms surround the floor of the pavilion. A circular table and bench are mounted on top of the center floor, and a disc shaped lamp is hung from the ceiling at the center. The Picnic Pavilion can be installed almost anywhere with a minimal foundation.

The Korean Pavilion at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia will present The FAR Game: Constraints Sparking Creativity. FAR (Floor Area Ratio) refers to the ratio of a building’s total floor area to the size of the piece of land upon which it is built. The FAR Game, curated by Sung Hong Kim and presented by Arts Council Korea, will explore the challenges and achievements of contemporary Korean architecture, under these regulatory constraints, and will illustrate the struggle of architects in Seoul who strive to improve the residents’ quality of life by utilising space effectively.

The new pavilions at East Point Park Bird Sanctuary use architecture as a means of framing one of Toronto’s most beautiful parks, while enhancing the pleasures of birding for visitors of all ages and levels of experience. Folded into angular shapes evocative of flight, sheets of laser-cut weathering steel form the pavilions for this wooded park on the Scarborough Bluffs, high above Lake Ontario. The materials palette, which also includes precast and cast-in-place concrete and galvanized grating, was chosen for durability and minimal environmental impact. The completed Phase One encompasses the Viewing Pavilion, a Bird Blind, and entry signage.

The Josey Pavilion is a multi-functional education and meeting center that supports the mission of the Dixon Water Foundation to promote healthy watersheds through sustainable land management. Traditionally livestock has caused more harm than good by overgrazing and not allowing our native prairies to play their important role in habitat and watershed protection, and carbon sequestration. The Josey Pavilion facilitates a deeper understanding of how grazing livestock as well as the built environment can work to do more good than harm.

CONCEPT. The issue of freedom of expression is a very delicate one. There are still many states where freedom of expression is strictly prohibited and in others it is strongly controlled by authoritarian governments. The chart below explains the worldwide situation of freedom of expression and the oppression of this human right.
