Garden Pavilion
2005

Wood

Set in a private garden, the Pavilion design was inspired by Eastern philosophy of harmony with Nature. It is used for sitting and dining, as well as workshops, concerts, and other activities of the Artistsí Garden Cooperative. The pavilionís lattice-like structure is made of cedar, with steel hardware and clear glazing. It allows layered views of the garden and sky, and frames the orbit of the moon. The roof structure aligns to shade the sun at solstice, but allows the sun to penetrate fully by equinox.
