The pavilion is made of beech timber boards, creating an aerated truss system that encourages ivy and other hardy plants to grow in between the gaps. The walls of the structure also double as staircases and beach-chair seating. Visitors are encouraged to lounge about during the day and relax, but the evenings are set aside for activities filled with incredible views of the park. Up to forty people can gather at the apex at once, making this a fantastic place to reinvigorate the city’s cultural and social life while giving back to nature at the same time.
