The Pavilion has found a new home!
The Pavilion's time at Langara College in Vancouver came to a close in the fall of 2010.

It was disassembled, and all 105 pieces were shipped up to the Heffley Creek area of British Columbia (about 45 minutes north of Kamloops). Thanks to the generosity of Vancouver-based art collectors and patrons Jane Irwin and Ross Hill, The Pavilion is being re-built as a permanent structure at their Art Ranch, a rural extension of their GreyChurch Project Space.

In June, 2011, over 23 friends and volunteers pitched in to help begin the process of reconstruction in the first annual Domeraising party.
Thanks to everyone who came out and pitched in!

This is the first stage in what will likely be a long-term building venture, making the Pavilion a self-contained site for future projects in relation to it's new rural context.

Stay tuned for future posts and updates on the project, and wish me luck in getting it weatherproofed and fully functional!
