Designed as a counterpoint to the elegant Miesian box that is the Art Center College of Design, the Sinclaire Garden Pavilion is a place where students could relax and socialize. Whereas Ellwood's design for the college is stark and unyielding, the Pavilion's design is very kinetic and playful. In fact, the large portions of the building are built on pivots allowing the occupants to change the space to fit their needs. The program for the building was created during an intensive two-day charrette with Art Center students, who asked for a space for impromptu lectures, art displays, and contact with the surrounding environment. A sheltered amphitheater sits on the north end of the building, overlooking the grass lawn and nearby mountains. Within, a cafe/kiosk serves food to hungry students.
