The poured-in-place concrete roof structure of the Webb Chapel Park Pavilion provides shade from the intense Dallas sun.
The cantilvered structure sits on just three structural piers, allowing for sightlines across the park.
Inside the pavilion, four voids—each framed in exterior cement board and coated with a fine-grained plaster that is painted a vivid yellow—draw out hot air, cooling the seating area below.
The canopy provides shade for benches and tables made with Ipe wood seats on painted-steel supports. The terraced concrete seating is nestled into an earthen berm that absorbs heat and helps choreograph views.
