Two modern canopies and a public restroom facility integrated into the parking structure below support the program of the COSI entry pavilion while serving as feature landmarks to welcome museum guests.

Project Type

Parks And Recreation

This project consists of two modern canopies that frame the entrance to the pavilion along with a public restroom facility integrated into the parking structure below. The design team developed a concept to integrate the public restrooms within the underground parking structure without distracting from the main entry points of the museum. The two shade structures not only provide shade and common gathering grounds for visitors, but also function as landmarks to welcome visitors to the museum in addition to framing views of the Franklinton landscape adjacent to the site.
