The 1,000 square foot pavilion is to be located in the Center of New Haven on the city’s green. A series of panels connected together with flexible rubber gaskets create a flexible framework to attach a fabric skin on the exterior while holding pointed rods on the interior. The juxtaposition of a sharp interior and soft exterior is made evident when the entire pavilion gently flexes in the wind. As a traveling pavilion, the shape is defined purely by the strength of the rubber connectors allowing the entire structure to bend varying amounts creating an ever changing floor plan reacting to environmental conditions and also programmatic requirements.
