Westmoreland Park Pavilion is based on a primary form of shading: cloud cover. A welcome sight on a hot sunny day, cloud cover offers a variety of diffuse and filtered light that constantly changes along with playful shadow patterns cast across the ground. Like cloud formations, the pavilion appears striking against the blue Texas sky.
Profiled steel louvers, powder coated white to give them a durable, high gloss finish, are hung from the underside of the structure. The steel structure above the louvers was designed to be invisible from the ground; frame elements are held back from the edge and taper to minimize their visibility, while the columns seemingly disappear into the undulating, floating canopy.
The structure was shop fabricated and assembled on site with mechanical fasteners. This approach meant that there were very few field welds on site. Field welding can damage the protective finish coating and create the potential for corrosion over time. By minimizing them, the lifetime maintenance costs of the structure were greatly reduced.
Situated in a neighborhood public park, the pavilion includes long cast-in-place tables for informal gatherings like picnics and parties.
