The Coney Island Pavillion | 2005.04
敷地概要 計画地: ニューヨーク、アメリカ 建物概要 建物用途: パビリオン 延べ床面積:
The Coney Island Pavillion or The Parachute Pavillion This pavilion should be like just a roof creeping on the land which does not make persons feel oppressive volumes and hard shapes. Because the Parachute Jump is very symbolic, the pavilion should not stand out on their relationship. From the court connecting the parking lot and the boardwalk, we can look up the Parachute Jump through a circle frame. The view is dramatic with a cherry tree. The Restaurant which floor is a gentle slope is like a theater to admire the Atlantic and the Parachute Jump through a ceiling slit. The Restaurant, Event Space and Deck, connected in personal flows and visually, can be used together in multi purpose and various methods. They will be a big show case like a space ship’s bow, so the area around the pavilion will be covered with dramatic atmosphere. It reminds people Coney Island history. The Restaurant’s large sliding doors will be opened in comfortable seasons to feel the sea wind. The cherry tree will describe four seasons. And the glass walls, printed leaves, along the slope and four offices mean a metaphor of delicate nature in the “space ship”. They will shine in the night. Please remember Noah’s ark. The roof will be made by rigid flames with steel. Columns are fixed stiffly into the foundation beams also. Therefore the roof can be made thin and light. We will adopt FRP waterproofing and dry materials for the top of the roof. Only foundations and Kitchen core are made from RC.
