WATER PAVILION

WATER THEMED PUBLIC PAVILION

 

A SERIES OF CONNECTED RIDGED PODS FORM A PAVILION WITH FLUID PEDESTRIAN CIRCULATION ON THE GROUND AND LOWER PLANES

 

VIEWING TERRACE OVERLOOKS STATEN ISLAND FERRY TERMINAL AND UPPER BAY; ACCESSIBLE ONLY FROM UNDERGROUND ENTRY

 

UNDERGROUND PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE BUT WITH OPTIONAL PRIVATE PROGRAM: BATHROOM, ADDITIONAL SEATING, BAR LOCATED ON UPPER FLOOR REACHABLE FROM UNDERGROUND SPIRAL STAIR

 

RIDGED LOOSELY CONNECTED MEMBERS CARRY WATER TO UNDERGROUND FILTER SYSTEM; WATER IS REUSED AS MISTING STATIONS: COOL IN SUMMER / WARM IN WINTER; THIS PROCESS ALSO WATERS THE MOSS;O2 FROM MOSS HELPS AERATE UNDERGROUND AREAS; IT ALSO SOFTENS AND WARMS A TYPICALLY HARD AND COLD OUTDOOR [CONCRETE/METROPOLITAN] SPACE DEVOID OF ACCESS TO EXTENSIVE VEGETATION

 

POROUS WALLS/FLOORS/CEILINGS COLLECT AND DIRECT WATER TO A CENTRAL CORE; A FEW SOLAR KEENLY PLACED PANELS POWER THE MODEST HEATER AND PUMP; THIS WATER IS RECYCLED AND REDISTRIBUTED AS STEAM; THIS SOLVES THE PROBLEM OF HEAVY LIFTING, SANITATION, AND TEMPERATURE; THE FINS THEMSELVES ARE HOLLOW THIN ALUMINUM;

ESSENTIALLY - WATER COMES DOWN THE OUTSIDE AND UP THE INSIDES
