ROOT Pavilion

The ROOT Pavilion is a nimble architecture of color and light. Against the grand staging of the new Charleston East building—an architecture of lightness in its own right—this pavilion performs as a complementary structure: one developed from the computational protocols and spirit of play that guide the work that happens on the premises. This system of many parts in bright-hued, ultra-thin aluminum will perform as an icon and a point of engagement for both Google employees and the Mountain View public. At this prominent intersection where Google campus meets public space, our expressive pavilion establishes an inspiring outdoor room that will draw curiosity and host interactions of many possible kinds— day and night.
