Botanical Pavilion

Botanical Pavilion

This pavilion required a design that could sustain the climate of the Alaskan Tundra in Buffalo. Located in the Rumsey woods, the project allowed large spruce trees to grow inside the structure and while generating spaces for visitors to circulate and view their large height. Several segmented spaces allow a path that flows throughout the volume to allow for this experience. Constructed within the ground, The building removes the visitor from their original context and allows them to fully experience what it is like to be in the Alaskan tundra.
