A temporary pavilion designed by artist Paul Chaney.
This structure, a continuation of Paul’s ongoing research into low impact ‘grass roots’ architecture, is an unprecedented exploration of building with bent willow and found waste.
Made using only traditional vernacular building techniques and post-consumer waste, and built during a series of public workshops, The Pavilion will house some of Kestle Barton’s summer events for this year (2015) and next season.
Volunteers worked with Paul on this project in a series of structured workshop days throughout May. Additional work was also done by Paul and other individuals.
Completed August 2015

This was a crucial stage in the building process: putting in the support beams for the structure.
