Reading Pavilion

Voorleespaviljoen (literally meaning Reading Pavilion in English) is designed to function as an educational reading pavilion. It is made out of two discarded animal feeding silos. The funnel, which is the original bottom of the silo, now functions as a rainwater harvesting system. The water is used for the surrounding greenery and vegetable garden on the playground. The UFO-shaped Pavilion is made in close collaboration with architect Iris de Kievith.
