Gallery: MS Lounge Sports a Forest-Like Facade of Recycled Plastic Tube...

The pavilion also has an outdoor area.

Inside, the space is airy and filled with daylight streaming from a strategically-placed skylight. The cement floor and thin, metal poles that hold up the roof give the interior a monochromatic, industrial look that is complemented by the poppy green of the reeds outside. In the center of the room, a chunk of the floor has been covered with what appears to be a carpet of crushed green wine bottles – a creative element that adds a lot of sparkle, especially since it’s encased in glass as if it’s Kryptonite.

“The organizational scheme is due to similar patterns of micro-structures, more in line with geometric patterns of liquid and/or aerosols than Cartesian structures,” say the architects of their design. At night, light filters through the plastic “reeds” from within, giving the pavilion a gorgeous glow.
