CLB Architects：Created for Design Pavilion and the NYCxDesign Festival, FILTER carves out space for quiet recentering within the frenetic energy of Times Square. Designed as both a monumental object and an ephemeral experience, the pavilion establishes a new node in the heart of New York City’s urban fabric – reorienting that experience toward the natural, rather than the man-made. Evoking the rugged Wyoming landscape from which it originates, FILTER draws the visitor into an engagement of its flowing folds of weathered steel and timber. At the pavilion’s center, a lone tree embodies the ecological cycles and serves as a counterpoint to the Manhattan’s urbanity.
Designed by CLB Architects, the pavilion’s chapel-like design facilitates a new understanding of place, providing each occupant the chance to explore their own relationship with the natural world. The structure’s concept began as a simple diagram – a folded sheet of paper, carefully sliced, and able to stand on its own. Eric Logan, Partner at CLB, translated this exercise into full-scale existence through a design composed of a series of standard-sized, half-inch hot-rolled steel plates, or “chaps,” arranged to form a 24-foot diameter, 20-foot-tall ellipsoid.

位于时代广场西46街和47街之间的“过滤亭”犹如一个外来物。自然风化的钢片吸引人们近距离观察，一个平缓的坡道环绕进入内部空间。城市的喧嚣、熙熙攘攘的人群和炫目的灯光都被过滤掉，参观者被隔离在其中，仿佛生活在”暂停 “的城市中。正如Logan解释的那样，这个结构提出了 “一个产品，它[过滤亭]改变了环境并创造了自己的环境”。一个由回收的冷杉木边角料制成的长凳被折叠到内部，环绕着一棵20英尺高的树木。这棵树的树冠只部分遮蔽了外面的天空，引人抬头仰望，陷入沉思。
FILTER, located between West 46th and 47th Streets at Times Square, appears to be a foreign object. Fluid shards of naturally-weathered steel invite close inspection, and a gentle ramp leads around the perimeter, offering views of the space held within. The noise, bustling crowds, and glaring lights of the city are filtered out, and the newly-centered visitor is left in solitude, inhabiting the urban “pause.” As Logan explains, the structure presents “an offering, it [FILTER] changes the environment and creates its own.” A bench of reclaimed fir offcuts is folded into the interior, encircling a live, 20-foot-tall tree. The tree’s dense canopy only partially obscures the sky beyond, inviting occupants to look upward and lose themselves in contemplation.
该结构每个元素的设计都注重其可持续性、便携性和使用寿命，超过了纽约设计节的持续时间。位于怀俄明州谢里登的EMIT公司负责钢结构的预制工作，也是展览的赞助商。钢材经过风化处理，形成了一层保护性的锈色，让人联想到落基山脉西部。轻微烧焦和有纹理的木材元素由位于不列颠哥伦比亚的可持续木材技术专家Spearhead用回收的胶合木梁制成。这些系统化的、结构上能自我支撑的组件首先被送到科罗拉多州的格里利进行测试组装，然后被拆卸并运往纽约市，由纽约的承包商Dowbuilt进行安装。犹他州的Helius公司负责监督照明设计，采用B-K Lighting的灯具，并与纽约的承包商Apollo Electric公司进行协调。最后由马里兰州亚当斯敦Raemelton农场捐赠的一棵有机树木共同完成了设计。
Each element of the structure was designed with attention to its sustainability, portability, and longevity, beyond the duration of the NYCxDesign installation. EMIT, based in Sheridan, Wyoming, is responsible for the steel prefabrication and is the exhibit patron. The steel was weathered to develop a protective rust patina evocative of the Rocky Mountain West. The lightly-charred and textured timber elements were crafted from salvaged Glulam beams by Spearhead, sustainable wood technologists based in British Columbia. These systematized and structurally self-supporting components were first sent to Greeley, Colorado for test assembly, and then disassembled and shipped to New York City to be erected by New York-based contractors Dowbuilt. Utah-based Helius oversaw lighting design, incorporating fixtures by B-K Lighting and coordinating with New York-based contractors Apollo Electric. An organic Exclamation Plane tree, donated by Raemelton Farm in Adamstown, Maryland, completes the design.

在纽约设计周结束后，这棵树将被捐赠给纽约市的非营利组织The Battery Conservancy，展亭则会被拆卸并运回怀俄明州，在EMIT总部延续其公共雕塑的使命，供后人享用。 当它完成巡回展出并最终停留在谢里登时，“过滤亭”表面的锈色变化会反映出西部干燥的空气和东海岸环境对其的影响。“过滤亭”建立了跨地域的联系并密切关注使用者的体验，创造了属于自己的一席之地。
Following the closure of the NYCxDesign festival, the tree will be donated to the New York City non-profit The Battery Conservancy, and the pavilion will be carefully disassembled and transported back to Wyoming to continue its life as a public sculpture at EMIT’s headquarters and enjoyed for generations to come. When it completes its cycle and reaches its final resting point in Sheridan, FILTER’s patina will reflect the accumulations of both dry western air and East Coast salinity. Forging connections across geography and intimately centered on occupant experience, FILTER makes a place of its own.
Free and open to the public, FILTER will be open daily, May 7-15, 2022, from 11:00am – 9:00pm.
