Mid-project reviews brought new insight into what a pavilion can be and why.  Many people expressed their value of flexibility in the functions of a pavilion.

Are the most successful spaces those that can provide a setting for a wide variety of people and activities?

The next step for the bamboo pavilion is to explore how it intersects with the ground plane, since that is a significant part of how it is experienced.

Not long before reviews, I made a discovery about the organization of the bamboo.  A pre-determined framework [e.g. chain-link fence, mesh, or another similar material] can provide the organization needed to regulate the assembly.  This allows for order and still achieves the visual transparency of the form.

It was suggested that I explore moving from a wall-form to a mound-form to become more of a landscape within the site.  However, this shift may compromise the initial ideas of transparency, enclosure, and the study of bamboo as a screen.  Benefits could be safety and improved sight lines.  If the wall structure remains, the back must be addressed.
