The Snowball Pavilion is a design proposal developed by graduate students Pasquale Esposito and Timothy Larke for the Spring 2013 COLD Studio at Kent State University's Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative. The COLD (Center for Outdoor Living Design) Studio explored interventions to improve the outdoor public space experience during cold weather months in Cleveland, Ohio. The Snowball Pavilions create a visually open, yet sheltered exhibition space for year round public use. The prefabricated horizontal wood members are designed to accumulate snowfall, creating an inhabitable and inviting snowball of warm glowing light. The Studio paralleled other efforts in the COLD initiative, including an international design compeition, outdoor exhibition and book publication, made possible with the generous support of Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
