The proposal suggests a pavilion structure to commemorate those who died in the First World War and the effects it had on society. The design takes inspiration from both Dunham Massey’s historical background as Stamford Military Hospital which treated 282 soldiers during the war, and the natural environment of the Winter Garden. ‘’Soldier or the Mountain’’ stands for the common name of the Tropaeolum polyphylum plant that grows currently in the park area and forms part of a class of plants used in herbal medicine for their antiseptic qualities. The main structure is formed of 4 marine plywood triangular frames, forming a structure to resemble the Tropaeoulum blossom. The use of perforated mesh within the framework brings steel to the structure as a metaphorical connection to the First World War, marking this catastrophic event in world history through war scenes wooven into the mesh. Thus, both accessible and educational the pavilion is capable of rapid prototyping and off site manufacture due to its simple yet powerful design.
