The Eco-Shade Pavilion is a special functional art structure designed for use in a public park and/or in a private garden. It is constructed from modular, prefabricated, sustainably grown wood components. These wood components can be bolted together in many ways in order to create pavilions of many different sizes and shapes. The curved wood support structure is made from laminated beams of two different radii, which are bolted together in different combinations in order to form complex organic shapes. These curved beams are then clad with straight boards that are attached with even spaces left between each of the boards. Some of the curved, board covered beams, form seating on the interior of the space.

My hope is that this structure will become an inspiring place for people to experience, as well as demonstrate how sustainably grown wood can be used to create extremely complex and exciting forms.
