Whirlbarrels envisions a flexible and community-driven area that maximizes the capacity of the urban space and creates an open platform for interaction and activity.
Two perforated wooden pavilions comprise the primary space, varying in size for either large gathering spaces or more intimate program. Perforations within the wall become inhabitable nooks for a variety of activities. The pavilions are equipped with pivoting semi-opaque plexiglass panels, which open or close off the nooks depending on the activity or the weather outside.
Numerous tables and chairs compose the space surrounding the pavilions, forming a dynamic public space for students, professors, children, employees, visitors and residents to use and shape the area, with the possibility for so many functions regardless of the weather and time.
