Solar Pavilion


The Solar Pavilion at the East Boulder Recreation Center was designed for Boulder’s Parks and Recreation department as a dynamic expression of it’s use.  As shelter and shade from the sun, the form of the pavilion follows the arc of the sun across the sky with a roof that supports a 30kW photovoltaic system to power the lights of the soccer fields and tennis courts that surround it.  Set among gardens within the playing fields at the center of the East Boulder neighborhood, the solar pavilion is a multi-functional community gathering place.
