Installation in Scott County, Kentucky, 2011. In collaboration with Mark Talbot.
In this temporary pavilion, the controlled collision of ruled surfaces generates arched passageways and vault-like spaces. In addition to defining a social space at the threshold of lake and land, the pavilion provides shade from the summer sun and magnifies the light of campfires lit beneath it at night. The tensile structure is created by aircraft cable spanning among existing trees. The membrane is a reflective and porous greenhouse cladding, whose appearance varies with the time of day and weather: either flat and shiny or diaphanous and glittering.
