Project 1 Exercise 1.1: Pavilion Research

Using the skills and techniques you developed in Part 2 – Research: Context & Material, find some general information and interesting examples of, pavilions.

Some questions to help get you started could be:

•What is a pavilion?
•What are they used for?
•Who uses them?
•Why do they exist – what is their history?
•Where are they located?
•How big are they?
•Are there some contemporary examples of pavilions?

Reflection on the task

It was useful to learn how versatile the term ‘pavilion’ is. As usual with research task I now want to go and visit the pavilion I researched, albeit serpentine pavilion is different every year. It is nice to know I have a pavilion too. InDesign continues to be difficult software, but it was nice to have a go again. It was quite hard to get back to study after a long break, but now I can feel the motivation to push on.
