Dont Give Up by SoliloquyPhotography-by-ChrisPegman

it would have been easy inside this dark shelter to feel negative & hopeless – & life can sometimes have any of us feel like that – yet, look up & out the (broken) window, & there is something so much better than the present circumstances would have you think possible.
Have faith, get up & get out into something better, something that floats yours dreams – in my case, getting out into the grandest of mountain scenery (through the window is the mighty Aoraki/Mount Cook)

GIMME SHELTER by mabel65

Studio Gang Architects‘ design for the SOUTH POND PAVILION was inspired by the tortoise shell. It features pre-fabricated wooden planks that have been interconnected and milled to form the curving structural members. The top of the pavilion is covered in semi-transparent fiberglass pods, which let light filter in while still protecting those underneath. Yoga classes and other educational programs use the pavilion regularly.

The pavilion is part of a larger redevelopment of the pond at the Lincoln Park Zoo designed by Studio Gang. Their project largely consisted of rehabilitating a dilapidated, 19th century urban park pond fed by city tap water into an exhibit on pond life. The depth of the pond was increased to improve oxygenation for aquatic life, and a wetland was engineered along the water’s edge with new plantings and drainage to encourage new wildlife and vegetation. A boardwalk made from recycled plastic now circles the pond and includes educational kiosks.
