The design of the pavilion stemmed from the desire to create soft and malleable spaces occupiable in novel ways. The pavilion is meant to be colonized based on the activities that it will accommodate.
These parameters then informed the various taxonomies of voids that catered to the programmed activities and were mapped on to a modular grid.
During the night, the lit pavilion changes its ambience and makes for a dynamic space. Light is used as a sculptural medium to elevate the perception of both light and space.
