Crux Pavilion

This somehow modest yet monumental piece appears as a simple form of opposition – that substantial role of Architecture – but in a temporal and non-conclusive manner. It is a duplicated archetypical figure of two columns supporting a beam that are articulated perpendicular to each other so as to define a cross shaped plan. The dimension in section, height and span is meant to unveil the hidden asymmetry of the existing pavilion.
By a manifested displacement of the very gravitational point of the whole interior (literally materialized by a pending granite bolder that is suspended on top of the water mirror), the gap between column and wall defines a new and specific character for the east-west diagonal flanks. There are only three dimensions for the pine lumber: one for the structural frames, another one for the cladding and the third one to join the other two.
