“The pavilion is created by a field of steel rods supporting a thin plate canopy eight metres above the streetscape. Pathways are defined within the pavilion by removing clusters of the rod structure, creating a generous seating area. These pathways reveal various densities of vertical rods, which shimmer in sunlight by day and reflect intense projected light by night, generating a visual moiré effect for passers by. At night the visual transparency of the structure is reinforced by up-lighting the clusters of rods - the pavilion appears to 'hold' light within its structure.”
