This pavilion sits in a plaza surrounded by three educational institutions. The brief was to design an informal semi open pavilion for the local student community as a space for daily interactions. The plaza is shaded with foliage of large trees. The proposed design is an undulating roof plane that manoeuvres through the dense foliage. The structure for the roof, imagined as a fragile spider web springs up from the trees and spans across plaza. A thin translucent fabric stretches across the framework to shade the plaza, enabling the local youth a space to gather.
