GARDEN PAVILION / SKIN + POLES
 

This building is an open air waterproof pavilion.  It is a contemporary example of a barn constructed completely of wood with a corrugated metal roof.  The skin is a structural slatted system of Number 1 Clear Pine, stained 3 shades of blue and gray to interact with the placement of the windows.

A variation of the generic POLE-BARN, this building is an EXHIBITION of LOW-TECH. A POLE-BARN is a unique building type known for expediency of construction. By embedding the POLES deep into the ground, the need for a foundation is eliminated. Instead of being weighted down by a slab, the enclosure of this building floats above the ground on POLES or piers, while every additional building component is added to the previously installed POLES. Every increasing layer of components effectively contributes towards stabilizing the project like a BALLOON across its surface. This building is surface deep structurally and programmatically acting as an open container, it is an inflated hollow building, open on the interior with a curious skin.
