Rope PavilionEdit profile
Through the combination of simple materials, rope pavilion creates a highly articulated form and space while nestling itself into the assiniboine credit union river trail’s landscape. Its relationship of skin, made from manila rope, and structure, crafted out of birch frame, merge to form a warming hut whose dense shell blocks winter winds while still being perforated for light and views. The wood interior creates a sense of warmth through colour and texture and its multilayered rope exterior collects snow, further embedding it within the site. The hut’s dome-like form is optimized for heat retention, bifurcating only for an entry threshold and oculus to the sky above. Rope pavilion’s simple, yet highly refined tectonics provide an enhanced visual and tactile experience to those traveling down the assiniboine credit union river trail.
