DEW is a proposal for relandscaping a part of the Inner Temple Garden in Northbank. Not only would it be a new gathering place in the area, where friends could spend their free time, but it would also be a study space where students would be able to work and collaborate together.
Because the area is regularly used by students, who study in the nearby colleges, and lawyers that can go to the park for breaks, I wanted to create a space, where they could enjoy their spare time during the day. The aim of this pavilion was not only to provide a space, where people could socialize, but it is also a place, which students or other users of this area could use for group works and collaborations. The cave-like structure of the pavilion would be located underground, close to the main entrance of the Inner Temple Garden, and become part of the landscape. Even though the space itself is hidden under the ground, the curved glass roof of it would be visible from the ground level of the park and protect visitors from the rain and wind, so the space can be used throughout the whole year. Because the roof is transparent, it would also be used as a skylight to provide natural light for the users and visually open up the space, letting the visitors see the surrounding architecture of the park and nearby trees as well as observe other people whether they are inside or outside this space. The pavilion would provide places for 3 small groups of people and accommodate 24-30 people at a time.
