This project was conceived to spatially orient visitors within the Confederation Centre of the Arts Plaza. The project is comprised of three pavilions – an enclosed visitor information kiosk and two occupiable “folded” objects – that are designed to activate the public plaza and engage visitors. The form of each of the pavilions is derived from the triangulated roof volumes of the Confederation Centre’s Memorial Hall, abstracted and manipulated to fit user needs.  These playful forms reflect the theatrical nature of the adjacent amphitheatre while presenting a distinct contrast with the surrounding brutalist architecture.
