City of Dreams Pavilion

Location: Governors Island, NY
Status: 2013
Program: Governors Island Pavilion Competition sponsored by Figment & ENYA & SEAoNY / Finalist
Size: N/A

The dreamcatcher, a pavilion where imaginations are lifted, elevating your dreams. It’s a pavilion that captures dreams at the idyllic meeting point of Governors Island, where people from all parts of New York can gather and encounter an experience unlike any other. We are proposing a simple, circular, lightweight structure that captures and establishes a changing collection of balloons. Why balloons? Because they’re joyful, uplifting and downright dreamy. Choose your shade, let your balloon go and dream a little dream.

 The City of Dreams Pavilion, a gathering place for people to meet, learn about the arts programs on the island, enjoy a performance or lecture, and experience the interaction of art and the historic context of Governors Island. Our theme for the pavilion, the City of Dreams, points towards the future. If we imagine a future in New York City
where anything is possible, what would it look like? In our wildest and most optimistic dreams, what is the future of the city?
