Explore GSAPP's three student-designed pavilions that feature solar-powered LED-illuminated inflatable canopies, near Avery Hall. Each structure is unique: Goo (not pictured in photo) evokes clouds, Hug (right in photo) resembles an archway, and Worm (left in photo) is based on a spline pattern. Come play, relax, recharge your devices, and enjoy the company of friends and family at GSAPP's newest student creations.
