Forest Park Pavilion dismantles the traditional framing ideas of structure and uses a new material, compressed bamboo laminate. Instead of the standard repeating grillages, a fluctuating pattern of large and small squares, deviating in pulse, establishes a grid with two rhythms. The eye travels over alternating scales as the conduit of axial load is impeded. The squares need not be a traditional structural confinement, but instead an act of liberation. By placing each strip of wood on top of the previous one, a weave emerges. The area exchange between small and big, and the thickness of each strip of wood as it engages the weave, designs contrasting curvatures.
