Mille-Feuille Pavilion

2017 City of Dream Pavillion Finalist
FIGMENT | AIA | Governors Island

created with Grace Yu + Dimitris Venizelos

The constructed city regulated our routines, interactions and perceptions. Its measured evolution, often directed by a few, establishes a rigid form incapable of meeting the needs of a diverse population. Re-purposing the fabric of the City- parallel sheets of debris netting, hung from Manhattan scaffolding, Mille-Feuille imagines an urban framework that encourages communities to sculpt their own environment. Whether a large round is needed for a performance or a tight enclosure for contemplation, space responds to ones needs through touch. A performance piece, Mille-Feuille celebrates the imaginary city as a vessel for discovery, encounter, and shared humanity.
