Madeleine's Picks | Dream House Pavilion

Exhibition Pavilion
1998
This 9 foot by 18 foot exhibition pavilion is based on a real dream of a house by the ocean, where fish swam beneath an open bamboo floor. In the pavilion, a cove of turquoise glass pebbles give the illusion of water shimmering between the bamboo poles. The translucent corrugated fiberglass roof pivots opens to let in the breezes, or closes during a tropical rain shower. The wood construction contains elements, such as a transom, shutters and niches, which recall elements of the typical casitas of Puerto Rico, where childhood summers were spent.
