Parachute Pavilion

Competition entry with Regina Huser. A new pavilion adjacent the 'Parachute' ride at Coney Island, New York. The structure is intended to address the datum between ground and boardwalk by means of a continuous sequential journey puntuated by the framing of the everday elements of the landscape. The formal resolution was driven by the approach, defined vistas and vertical shift. The desire to consider the theme of journey and the monumental quality of normality was driven by Robert Smithson's writing and the 1979 film 'The Warriors'.
