Meridian is a site-specific pavilion that transforms the Penn West pocket park into a new community hub for sitting, snacking, gathering and socializing. MERIDIAN draws inspiration from the celestial meridian that run along the Earth and becomes a kind of marker of time — the colorful patterns on the wood surfaces correspond to shadows that will be cast on these faces at solar noon on the upcoming summer solstice, autumn equinox and winter solstice. MERIDIAN aspires to create greater awareness of time and encourage moments of pause, reflection, and interaction between people and place.
