Sun Valley Music Pavilion
Sun Valley, ID 83353 US
The Seasonal Sun Valley Music pavilion, located on the south western end of the soccer field at the Sun Valley Resort is inspired by its natural setting and destined to become a community gathering place for performance events.
The sky and mountain are captured by the free flowing sensual roof, comprising of a seasonal luminous tensile membrane covering 1500 seats and a permanent steel cable net with wood shingled structure providing cover over stage and support facilities. The surrounding landscape will be sculpted into an undulating park gently elevated like a natural amphitheatre, so you'll be able see Trail Creek Canyon, Dollar Mountain and Baldy while you relax with your picnic basket and enjoy orchestral music.
The facility will be a technological and structural accomplishment. It demonstrates how a permanent and seasonal structures can be integrated to offer the best of both worlds- use of wood for symphonic acoustic blending and a tensile membrane for luminous reflective space. The Sun Valley Summer Symphony will host its season at the facility along with other community and arts events, each with an intimate relationship to the stage with unobstructed sightlines and excellent sound quality.
