Venice Beach Pavilion
Constructed 1963 Dedicated February 8, 1964

The Venice Beach Pavilion has a hyperbolic paraboloid shape, which is a continuous, flowing, double-curved surface used mainly in concrete skin roofs. It appears wing-like in one elevation and as an arch from the opposite side. It is also referred to as a saddle-shape roof. The seemingly complex geometry is actually relatively simple and its construction is largely dependent on repeating straight lines and strands. With minimum ground supports, this dynamic roof geometry appears to defy gravity. Other symbolic elements embodied are open views, the wind, and the gulf waves.
