Description:
The subtle curvature of the Aero pavilion, slowly rises and envelops visitors at torso-height. Once inside, the upper body is cocooned in a permeable form that floats on all sides like a cloud. Larger perforations allow glimpses out of the pavilion. Aero is constructed from recyclable plastic tubes, which are durable and easy to transport and assemble. Tubes are combined into sections off-site, which are then clipped together on-site to form the completed pavilion. The pavilion is easy to construct, making it easy to involve community groups such as local universities and schools, who could contribute to the off-site assembly.
