Rope Pavillion - 2012

From Warming Huts at The Forks

Team: Kevin Erickson and Allison Warren, New York, NY ---- Through the combination of simple materials, ROPE pavillion creates a highly articulated form and space while nestling itself into the Assiniboine River Trail's landscape. Its relationship of skin -- manila rope and structure -- 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 color 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 pavillion's simple, yet highly refined tectonics provides an enhanced visual and tactile experience to those traveling down the Assiniboine River Trail.
