Beltline, Atlanta, Georgia
A network of pavilions offering opportunities for bathing, feeding, and seating for birds,, insects, and people. Through these activities, moments of
observation and repose emerge. The pavilions re-frame nature in a
reclaimed post-urban context and draw attention to the Atlanta
BeltLine as a space of community and landscape restoration.
perceptions are reinforced through the pavilions' materiality. All
structures are constructed of mirror faced plywood and wood studs.
The exterior mirror cladding plays upon perception. At times the
mirrors camouflage the structures. At others, activated by even the
slightest change in perspective or movement , the structures stand in
subtle opposition to their environment. This is due to the
juxtaposition of the precise orthogonal geometry of the mirror with
the organic forms and meandering and material softness of the path.
