For the Dumbo Arts Festival Situ Studio has installed the Solar Pavilion 2 in the Fulton Ferry State Park. We will also be hosting an open studio on Saturday and Sunday.
Situ Studio has been commissioned to design and build a pavilion for this summer's CitySol green arts and energy festival. CitySol is hosted by Solar One and will be taking place in Stuyvesant Cove Park, along the East River at 23rd Street. The pavilion structure is built as a simulation of a self-organizing system and CNC cut with a zero-waste mandate. An array of scales made from eco-friendly corn-starch plastic lines the interior. Seating and furnishings built with plyboo, is woven into the structure.
