Revisiting a place you poorly remember is often accompanied with experiences of disorientation, frustration, and rediscovery as your mind tries to reconcile reality with confused or even fabricated memories of specific details. The recombination pavilion replicates this experience in the physical environment, teasing its occupants with disorienting forms and changing with its environment to ensure memories of it rarely match reality.
Throughout the pavilion, boardwalks, trees, walls, and mirrored windows constrain and complicate perspectives, drawing viewers through the pavilion to seek out better vantage points. Windows and platforms look back in on the structure, rarely allowing visitors to orient themselves within the space. In some places, forced perspectives seem to make the wood or concrete-cladded roofs and walls join into larger shapes.
