The gentle curve of the pavilion embraces the sports oval, setting its radial grid. Undulating concrete walls enclose circular spaces that are open to the air yet protected from the wind, rain and sun by a sweeping fibreglass roof with generous overhangs. A vibrant yellow mesh is draped from the vaulted steel structure, allowing the daylight to filter through while imparting an element of joy and delight.
The Pavilion is an intentionally raw structure that seeks to be direct and straightforward in its tectonic expression yet ephemeral and playful in its spatial character.
