1515 Park Pavilion

  • The plan's south-west elevation (West Mt. Royal Ave) sits leveled with the existing courth and sidewalk. Diagonal steps along the eastern perimeter adhere to the site's topographical descension (not to be confused with the ascending steps on which the pavilion is positioned) 
  • Site map & Google Earth snapshot - Maryland Institute College of Art, MICA
  • Relationship between proposition and local campus elements
  • From top to bottom: sections A, B, C, SketchUp rendering 
  • Each tree began with an aluminum foil model that was casted in silicone rubber. Once cured, the cast was filled with concrete to produce multiples efficiently. Each Richard Serra-like wall received its own unique cast simply made of cardboard treated with a release agent.
  • The pavilion relies on cable stays anchored in concrete to successfully cantilever upward. Referring to the site plan, the pavilion overlooks topographical descension which results in a greater amount of overhead space beneath the pavilion's canopy.
