KREOD’s sculptural pavilion conveys a sense of weightless motion with its curves and graceful undulating silhouette. Located on a teardrop-shaped wooden platform, the structure is positioned so that it looks like the massive bow of a ship when viewed head on. At night, light sources placed on the ground project light upwards onto the ribbed underside of the structure, creating a dramatic effect.
