Building Modern Pavilions

By Dwell @dwell
A free-standing pavilion can accent a building, provide temporary shelter and function as a pleasurable home away from home. Here are four very different examples of the modern pavilion, accompanied by the architects' original blueprints for the designs. Slideshow Photo

Architect Mike McKay moved to Louisiana for two years during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Since many of the cypress trees and gardens in City Park were destroyed in the storm, volunteers took responsibility for maintaining the park. McKay stepped up to design a 1,000-square-foot pavilion for the volunteers. With money from donors and material contributions from places like Gallina, Extech and Acadia Hardwoods, the New Orleans Botanical Garden Duplantier Volunteer Pavilion was built.
