Rose Haggar Park Pavilion
Dallas, Texas
The Rose Haggar Park Pavilion design employs a contemporary sculpted geometry that also draws expression from the Arts and Crafts movement common to the Great Depression era and the CCC and WPA park development projects. As such it shares lineage with the traditions of American park structures. A ubiquitous residential brick typical to this suburban neighborhood is rendered steel and timber as organic and metaphorical to tree trunks and limbs. A colored glass roof extends the metaphor with blue, green and yellow light dappled as if filtered through a forest canopy. Illumination of the twisted plane glass roof is concealed between the roof timbers, extending a welcome evening gesture to the neighborhood and passersby.
