Architect Creates Digitally Sculpted Timber Pavilion

Architect Creates Digitally Sculpted Timber Pavilion

Designer of the Year, David Adjaye created a special hybrid furniture-architecture pavilion at Design Miami/ 2011.

Each year Design Miami/ recognizes design achievements with a designer of the year award. This year architect David Adjaye was selected and commissioned to create a pavilion outside the Design Miami/ exhibition tent. He designed ‘Genesis’ which is constructed from a common sized piece of timber. Adjaye computer modeled a structure and then digitally sculpted out an organic shaped interior space. He wanted to create a pavilion that blended the idea of architecture, furniture and sculpture, a nod perhaps to Art Basel’s location directly across the street.

Genesis is intended to serve as a meeting place and visitors can freely walk through the space or sit on the interior benches. A circular shaped skylight lets sunlight in during the day. Adjaye collaborated with his brother on a special piece of music which can be downloaded via a link or QR code from within the pavilion.
