Renovation of the park and design/construction of a new pavilion at Dow School Park in the Sixth Ward of Houston.  The Long House combines outdoor recreation programs in a continuous organizational band covered by a series of  roof profiles and materials that are adapted from the Victorian era residential fabric surrounding it.  Historic sensitivity meets a contemporary programmatic mixture.  A collaboration between Metalab (Architecture) and Asakura Robertson (Landscape Architecture).
