CAT students launch floating hyperbolic paraboloid pavilion

  • Comment

Architecture students on the Centre for Alternative Technology’s Part 2 course have built a floating pavilion on a reservoir within the school’s site in Machynlleth, Wales

ELEVATIONS • AXONOMETRIC DETAIL 

Designed and project managed by student Phoebe Stock, the brief called for a contemplation space. 

Stock’s idea embraced the wet weather of the Snowdonia hills with a pavilion that could be moored on the water’s edge or floated out onto the reservoir depending on the user’s needs. 

Constructed by students during the course’s summer build week, the hyperbolic paraboloid canopy sits above a timber deck.
