In The Night

Being one in the night sky is the focal point of this design, with the idea of curiosity and exploration being sublayers to the concept. The shell of the pavilion allows for the framing of views to the night sky from below. It provides viewers with an opportunity to experience the night sky in a new way as the frame presents selective views and visual access to the sky. A convergence of solid and void materials is present in the pavilion design, the timber bases being the solid and the soft grass acting as the void. Internally, one can have a multitude of experiences, through interactions with the solid base form surfaces or the soft grass surface. Where these differ is being able to look laterally while on the hard surfaces, and only primarily vertically when being on the soft grass surface.
