Governor's Cup Pavilion

On June 7th 2014, The Governor’s Cup Pavilion designed by CDR Studio Architects was revealed during the 5th Annual Figment Art Festival in Governor’s Island, NY. This project, created out of 30,000 recycled clear plastic cups was a highlight of the festival as its hovering clear organic lattice-like structure danced around the surrounding trees and draped all the way down to the grass. The Governor’s Cup Pavilion was this year’s City of Dreams Pavilion winner hosted by Figment, ENYA (Emerging New York Architects) and SEAoNY (Structural Engineering Association of New York) as an architectural installation entry for the island. The organizations called for production volunteers of which, one of our own project designers; Jeanne Chiang, LEED Green Associate, had participated. This was a 6 month long design collaborative that called on architects to engage in different tasks from cup cleaning all the way to assembling the cup modules and zip-tying. If you look closely, her name, along with the 100 plus volunteer designers is labeled on the cups, giving proper credit to all those who worked on it.
