wHY Wins Ross Pavilion

Undulating Walkway


In collaboration with a large multidisciplinary team, the American firm wHY has turned out the winner, among 125 participants, of the competition for the chance to design the Ross Pavilion: a visitor center and café in West Princes Street Gardens, in Edinburgh. Meant as a venue for cultural events, the facility will cost 25 million pounds to build and it will be a marker in a broad landscaping operation intended to modify access into the park as well as movement within it, with the aim that views of Edinburgh Castle, lording over the gardens, remain their focal point. All this along a promenade whose undulating form draws inspiration from the geology and history of this unique enclave in Scotland.
