A Flight-Inspired Bird-watching Pavilion Soars

Bird lovers have a new nest to flock to

By Eric Mutrie

PLANT Architect Inc. hatched this design for a viewing pavilion at East Point Park bird sanctuary on the Scarborough Bluffs. Sheets of Corten steel are folded into a slanted roof resembling a pair of spread wings, while a bird pattern and the names of local species are laser-cut into the supporting walls. A nearby screen allows visitors to observe feathered friends in their natural habitat without scaring them away.
