2016 Best of Design Award for Student Work: Sensory Pavilion
Team: Dirt Works Studio, University of Kansas Location: Lawrence, KS
Dedicated to the senses, the open-air sensory pavilion is grounded with natural materials: a compacted earth floor, walls of rammed earth and charred cedar, and gravel. From the sound of gravel beneath the feet to the smell of charred wood and dappled light through the rear screen, it’s truly an immersive experience.
