Sensory Pavilions is a structure for ephemeral and direct sensory interactions between the body, architecture, and the environment they inhabit. The connection between them is achieved through surface manipulations that create textures, apertures, and enclosures, which serve as modulators for multiple effects, both natural and synthetic. Such phenomenological boundary, then, affects the spatial immediacy of the visitor, rendering the body aware of its surroundings at a perceptual level; never fully understanding; never fully judging.
Three pavilions extend from different locations of the site and weave together to create a singular structure leading to the re-purposed fishing wharf platform. Each pavilion contains programmatic spaces or effects that stimulate one of the three highly spatial senses: tactility, vision, and hearing.
