City of Dreams Pavilion Competition, 2017
Hosted by FIGMENT, the Emerging New York Architects Committee (ENYA) of the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter (AIANY)
Program: Pavilion out of 100% recyclable material
Location: New York, NY
This project aims to investigate the quality of coil spring material collected / purchased from mattress recycle facilities. Its elastic and flexible character allows unlimited architectural compositions including free standing arches, play / relaxing platforms, and innovative outdoor furniture. As each component is carefully bound together, the area becomes a special public space with dynamic shadows cast upon its visitors. With a strong sense of place, people will come to meet, play, relax and dream.
