Confluence is an sinuous architectural pavilion designed to shed light on the relationship between the past, present and future.
Through simple methods of modern construction and human interactivity Confluence endeavours to create a unique public space which utilises the beauty of its surroundings.
These ideas are represented through the illuminated canopy which drops to a singular point at the centre of the pavilion, creating intrigue and a focal point of light.
Beneath the viewer’s feet are a series of pathways created from lightweight materials and a forest of columns. The floor is covered with reflective acrylic plastic which mirrors the overlying canopy and its light source.
Viewers are able to interact with the structure through the use of motion sensors hidden within the floor and supported by a lighting system which changes colour as you navigate through the pavilion.
