The Wine History Pavilion has been designed using Integrated Project Delivery, a delivery approach that has been gaining popularity that involves the participation of multiple disciplines at every stage of design. For this group, that entails the participation of students from the departments of Architecture, Architectural Engineering, and Construction Management working in tandem to handle every facet of the design.

The goal of this project is to design a pavilion for the Wine History Project, who needed a display space to house a variety of exhibits showcasing artifacts relevant to the history of wine. The pavilion will originally be installed at the Saucelito Canyon Tasting Room, but will be relocated to various other sites in the area.

The Wine History Pavilion is intended for the display of wine-related historical artifacts by the Wine History Project. It will need to accommodate various exhibits of differing size and organization. The pavilion will need to provide protection from the elements to both the visitors and exhibits housed within. A major consideration for the pavilion will be the need to easily disassemble, transport, and reassemble it for relocation to other sites. For this reason, the design emphasizes ease of assembly, lightweight construction, and the minimizing of long-term impacts to the site.
