Like folded paper, the simple rectangle of the St. Augustine Park Pavilion is sliced and pulled apart, creating a form which retains its purity and yet incorporates a visual dynamism from the diagonal tensions. A single concrete plane acts as the floors, walls, and ceilings, and enfolds a rectangular room that frames the panoramic view of the park. Exterior walls are painted white, enunciating and further expressing the dichotomy of the solid pavilion mass from its soft, natural park setting. Interior walls utilize the grain of the wood formwork, which is imprinted into the concrete during construction, helping to express a warmer quality inside the pavilion. The zigzag shape of the opening extends the flow of nature from the outside to the inside space. The simplicity of the pavilion massing blends and clarifies the horizontality of this natural setting with a single elegant gesture.
