Description
Love Above All is a reminder that amidst the many crises and challenges we have faced this year, there is still love above all else that brings us together. Present Forms' proposal is a circular structure that reveals a hidden heart when seen from two points of view. It is a space to be entered, transforming the plywood window boards that have become emblematic of distrust and unrest into a pavilion that invites, includes, and lets people in safely during times of uncertainty. A series of scalloped arches creates a embracing frame for loved ones to engage with from all directions. A closed circle in plan is the strongest structural shape, and is an explicit acknowledgement of the incredible resilience that we gain when we act as a collective.
