The open international Niagara Falls Pavilion contest seeks to foster “a re-encounter with nature and with people,” re-imagining a space between two countries that’s united by natural beauty.
The project should highlight the uniqueness of Niagara Falls, creating a space for people to meet and relate to the spectacular setting, offering the visitor a unique experience.
The pavilion may be a specific intervention or occupy the entire proposed range, and may contain the following functions:
- Area of contemplation, where the main focus is nature. A space to look, hear and feel.
- The design should consider accessibility, tours, as well asvariability over time.
- Rest area where the stresses of everyday life are eliminated.
- Restaurant space.
- Administration-meeting area and toilets.
