THE Pavilion defines the entry point of the Addison Arts and Events District. The Pavilion’s steel frame supports a flat roof deck of natural pine. Its east half contains a large covered porch with steel columns thrusting through circular ventilation holes in the roof. Atop the columns are large steel discs that shade the openings. A small catering kitchen with service windows faces the porch. The Pavilion’s west half houses restrooms wrapped in glazed concrete masonry and laminated glass. The milky-white glass walls maintain privacy while allowing ample natural light. These crisp materials provide for the essential component of easy cleaning and maintenance.
