Rope Pavilion is one of 5 winning proposals for the Warming huts competition. The project was designed by New York-based firm kevin erickson + allison warren and is planned to be constructed this January into the Assiniboine credit union river landscape in Winnipeg, Canada. The structure of the pavilion is made from manila rope going around the birch wood frame chassis. The dome-like form is gently lifted from one side in order to create an entrance to the cozy shelter, with the slight perforations in the outer shell it brings the natural lights inside while retaining the heat. The stools in the pavilion are made from a bundle of large gauge ropes. “Rope Pavilion” provides its visitors with a warming feeling through the tactile experience as well as an open invitation to enjoy a cup of coffee inside.
