The Banyan Pavilion adapts the ideals of a banyan tree, with its aerial prop roots and large canopy, to create a pedestrian rest stop that stylizes the tree using timber construction. Designed to juxtapose the idea of Laugier's Primitive Hut, the pavilion tries to retain the aesthetic connection and experience of sheltering under a tree as opposed to adapting the tree to resemble a shelter.
