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