Freedom Park has emerged as one of Atlanta’s premier urban landmarks. Freedom Park is Atlanta’s Art Park and home to permanent art installations that span its 210 acres of linear green space. The pavilion concept SEAT by New York and Portland-based collaboration E/B Office has won the commission for this year’s Freedom Park Project at Atlanta. SEAT is a garden pavilion composed of approximately 400 simple wooden chairs arrayed and stacked in a 3-dimensional sine wave surface rising above the ground.
Standing nearly 145 feet tall, the inflatable structure sits in the Hirshhorn’s courtyard, ballooning through the top of the building. It will be visible from all sides of the museum and at points along the Mall. The pavilion will transform the Plaza’s public space into a seasonal auditorium, café, and meeting place filled with activity.
