Art Pavilion

Driven by a clients’ desire for a support-minimizing design with no intermediate posts, this steel tube and lightweight skinned structure cantilevers 20’-0” through the use of piers, back-stay cables, and a truss sub-structure.   The saw-tooth section of the roofline harkens back to Donald Wexler / Walter Netsch classic modernist tetrahedral forms: a formal language appreciated by the clients in their love of Palm Beach Modernism.

Goal: seek a light, strong, sleek structure imbued with architectural contextualism (MCM familarity)
