The Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) has announced the fourth iteration of its annual pavilion series Fugitive Structures. Designed by Vo Trong Nghia Architects, the pavilion centers around “the innovative use of bamboo, and [the architect’s] passion and self-imposed duty to green the world’s urban landscapes with plants and vegetation.”

The pavilion features a grid-like construction with a clear ceiling that creates a shelter from the elements while allowing visitors to view the sky.

Overall, the structure is highly porous, which allows various entry points for adults and children to walk or crawl through.
