The following is an excerpt from the book:
"This pavilion, a new focal point for the Pratt Institute campus in Brooklyn, NY, is used by the students and faculty to exhibit the work of (the) institute’s students. Clad with stainless steel and suspended between two existing industrial loft buildings on the main Pratt Institute campus, the project includes a glazed entrance lobby for the pavilion and the adjacent Steuben Hall and Pratt Studios. Behind the Juliana Curran Terian Design Center Pratt Pavilion, which includes the glass entrance and a new circulation bridge to the south, a new courtyard makes an outdoor room for informal meetings and classes in warm weather. The building is clad with hand-finished stainless steel panels, and the glazed north-facing facade looks towards the institute’s main quadrangle, with screens that pull down to darken the space for slides or videos. To the south, the pavilion bridge ramps east and west, creating a circulation zone which connects the Pratt Pavilion, Steuben and Pratt Studios. The courtyard and pavilion are designed to work together as a ventilation system. Windows on the south facade open to bring air from the courtyard through the pavilion, and out through windows on the north facade."
