Recently we covered a variety of temporary structures [2] that are designed to serve a brief artistic purpose. In the spirit of all things sustainable, however, these structures have been built for re-use, just like the All Soul’s Day pavilion.¬†Fit to hold 40 people and comprised of little more than two large picnic tables and a wood-fired stove, the temporary pavilion also features an unusual fabric roof. Illuminated at night and all puffed up with smoke, the hovering shelter creates the feeling that peaceful souls are hanging out nearby as their loved ones honor them. And thanks to the thought given to sustainable design [3], the pavilion can be used over and over again.
