The SLCC Pavilion takes on the roles of an art piece, gateway structure, and public meeting place, which celebrates the notion of education, communication and innovation. The pavilion is an aesthetically pleasing addition to the cultural qualities of the community, and resonates with a larger audience. Our proposed “Campus Pavilion” project will celebrate the notion of public domain, serves as an addition to the qualities of the SLCC building, the campus in large, and its community. It is our goal that the project will support the redevelopment of the campus, activate the area and resonate with a larger national and international audience. This design proposal focuses on a idea of a communication device. The art work is connecting the SLCC building to the larger campus. The form is conceived as a pavilion type which allows larger gatherings, formal - and informal use and will have a high frequency usage of students. The design proposal reflects these qualities with a strong formal sculptural expression and coloration creating a identity and recognizable figure. The form allows for community gathering, visual appreciation, and the building of a strong identity for the SLCC building.
