Fitting in nicely with the sustainable mission of Socrates Sculpture Park, the Sticks structure is made out of standard dimension lumber as well as various scrap wood pieces that were found on-site. On the interior, the wooden slats serve as both storage and a display area.

According to the architects’ description, the load of the pavilion was evenly distributed by continuing the roof onto an existing shipping container. A pathway runs through the open-ended structure, again using the shipping container as a support wall.

The Sticks structure is open to the public, but will also be used as a hub for art students participating in Socrates Sculpture Park’s Education Studio program. The structure will be open until December 31.
