Sticks II

Hou de Sousa as Architects

Sticks II is an art work shop and teaching space at Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, NY. The project functions as an extension of a pavilion we built in 2016 as part of the Arch League of New York’s Folly Competition. Several new features have been added to this new iteration that allow the space to be used year round, including a cellular polycarbonate façade and four large barn doors,two of which are dedicated topassively cooling the space during warmer months. The building materials are almost entirely off-the-shelf, with the exception of the post shoes, which were custom cut and welded. The premise beyond Sticks and Sticks II has been to provide a structural system that doubles as storage and a means of shading the interior space.

Material Used :

1. Cedar Lumber

2. Insulated Polycarbonate – ePlast USA

3. Barn Door Hardware – National Hardware

4. Custom steel post shoes – Rapid Steel

5. Concrete piers
