AIA El Paso will design and build an interactive pavilion to give visitors a chance to experience the perception of space from a whole new perspective. We will create a surface of catenaries that will move as people interact with it, visit us throughout the festival and see how the design changes as more people contribute to it. Then, come back again in the evenings to watch the display change colors using lights!
