The Wine History Project of San Luis Obispo (the “WHP”) has been collecting and presenting viniculture artifacts from the last two centuries. With the need to display and maintain important artifacts comes the need for a structure that can fulfill such criteria. The purpose of this project was to design a pavilion that could entertain individuals while also displaying artifacts for the WHP. Additionally, the project’s design followed the recently trending method of integrated project delivery, which included the Architecture and Architectural Engineering departments. From the beginning, the design was influenced by its value propositions while still working within the constraints of the project. For instance, the structure was designed to be easily deconstructed and transported while maintaining longevity of the materials. The result of the design showcased both the simplicity and durability of aluminum framing and polycarbonate sheathing. Prior to final presentation of the design, a tangible mockup of the structure had to be fabricated in the CAED Support Shop. This mockup required a cost sensitive budget while procuring local materials. Among many design teams in the running, one was to be chosen as first place, with the winning design proceeding to the construction phase. This project design was chosen as second place.
