Scunthorpe Pavilion 1

European firm S & P Architects has designed the Scunthorpe Pavilion in North Lincolnshire, England. With a sculptural form, the pavilion establishes a dialogue with the surrounding play area and amphitheatre. Here is a description from the architects, “It is designed to compliment the proposals for the surrounding landscape design and regeneration of the park – adressing the human scale and the unfolding of the pavilion as an event in the park.

The split stereotomic form allows the accommodation to organise itself as a functional and secure entity. The tectonic screen wraps itself around the secure form, creating an interest through its refined ornament and sculptural wavelike effect.

Cor-ten (weathering) steel is used to express the materiality of the pavilion – it is durable, vandal proof and its rust-like appearance of autumn tones fits well with the surrounding park landscape. The design was generated by the use of parametric and scripting software (Rhino and Grasshopper)”
