Night and Day

Hopkins, MN

The central theme of this permanent outdoor pavilion is the reverse perception of night and day. A steel dome with a laser-cut star pattern allows the observation of the night sky during the day, while a circular light embedded in the dome’s center represents the sun after dark.

The pavilion’s 20-foot diameter perforated steel plate dome is hung with thin rods from four inclined steel columns. Silman worked closely with the architect on the design and detailing for the project foundations, columns, tension rods, and dome elements.
