MASS Design Group
Designers: Michael Murphy, Alan Ricks
MASS Design Group's proposal, Bottle Service, is based on the concept of a river frozen in time and space. Resembling an underwater zone below a series of ice floes, the installation is designed to cool visitors in the hot summer months through the introduction of large areas of shade and the suggestion of a chilly, watery world. The design also incorporates a plunge pool and a misting system, lowering temperatures within the pavilion and encouraging visitors to interact with their surroundings. The structure employs only recycled or recyclable materials, including thousands of plastic bottles strung together to create a clear plastic canopy, with the goal of making reusable investments that benefit the surrounding community.
