As the Kansas sun beams across the plains, ecologists collaborate, exposed to the heat. It is a humble landscape, dappled in subtle beauty. A pavilion built in honor of the environment, and the people who preserve it, should relish the land and reveals it's intricacies. This pavilion is functional, but more than that, it filters light and illustrates sun patterns. It extricates the earth and exposes it's unknown capacity for simultaneously smooth and rough tactility. It pays homage to the rolling landscape and the windblown priarie. It is Kansas.
