The Pavilion Project - Artist Residency 2017

The Pavilion Project - Artist Residency 2017

Master of Architecture students at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design have designed, built and installed a full-scale, site-specific pavilion at Manitoga as the main feature of the 2017 Artist Residency Program.

The Artist Residency program was initiated in 2014 to foster creative responses to Manitoga that invoke Russel Wright's legacy of creative experimentation and celebration of place. Through form, structure, material and process, the pavilion responds to Manitoga's rich history and extraordinary setting.
