#Rain Pavilion

THUWAL, SAUDI ARABIA

In collaboration with UAP Brisbane, Dalziel and Scullion’s Rain Pavilion is an immersive experience that portrays the diversity and subtlety of rain. Within this specially designed structure is an audio archive of rain days, recorded in the artist’s homeland of Scotland. A circular seating area has been provided inside the structure allowing visitors to sit, relax and enjoy the sound of rain.

The pavilion’s subtext embraces more complex themes which both suggest the work as a foil to the institutional and corporate modernism of the campus architecture, and to highlight the cultural and environmental concerns regarding the modernization and development of desert lands.
