Text description provided by the architects. The San Lucas Pavilion is, fundamentally, a reinforced concrete structure , barely 15 cm wide, which is arranged based on screens and one-meter edge beams, constraining an 11x11 meter square ground plan, in the limit between a lush pine forest and a very clean and carefully kept prairie.
This structural canopy is organized in strips which are parallel to the direction that takes you from the forest to the prairie. This is reflected in the slab that provides support for the floor, which is punctured at some places to allow the vegetation to grow. Small brick boxes, independent from the structure, enclose the more specific functions, and also several parts are covered by a 45º folded metal sheet, offering protection from the rain.
The pavilion is transparent, but prominent, immediate in its materiality and flexible in use.
