(re) source pavilion (nearly) finished!

The majority of the strapping and roofing of the pavilion was completed after three days of extensive work by the volunteers. The installation of the 'leftover' metal roofing and cedar shingles when as planned, except for some minor changes. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough shingles to complete the roofing so the group will return in a few weeks to complete their task. The project will be featured in an exhibition at Toronto's Harbourfront Centre in early June. Stay tuned for more information.

(re)source pavilion structure completed

The structural elements of the (re) source pavilion have been completed over the past weekend. The pavilion is being built by a group of local and student volunteers who have an interest in sustainable architecture. The mature ash logs were harvested directly on the site and erected using ropes and pulleys then a backhoe. Connections were made using threaded dowels and Band-it, a stainless steel banding system used primarily to fasten equipment to hydro poles.
