TRILUX, designed by Future Cities Lab, is an experimental pavilion constructed out of three vertical wooden lattice structures that will be on display in downtown San Francisco until November 20th . It creates an illuminated beacon anchoring the corner of the site and inviting the neighborhood to participate in the museum activities that take place inside it. More images and project description after the break.

TRILUX is fabricated by combining traditional steam-bending techniques with CNC milled and laser cut components. The south faces of TRILUX host hundreds of curved spiked shade quills. Visitors view the sky through three unique woven oculi and in the evening lights illuminate the interior lattices.
