Michelangelo Pavilion 2017

Michelangelo Pavilion debuted at Chicago International 2017

The Michelangelo Pavilion 2017 was inspired by the altar in the Cathedral at Cadiz.  Details include the Corinthian capitals painted gold on the fluted columns, the external frieze with swags, ribbons, and cupids, the internal frieze with swags, and ribbons.  There are 2 columns at every corner of the octagon, for a total of 16.

The floor was made from individually cut squares of countertop laminate in hunter green and beige marble patterns.  The structure has a gorgeous chandelier by J Getzan - the "Versailles".  The base is covered with patterned stone.  The roof has plexiglass panels to allow natural light in the structure.  The 'walls' are glass between the columns.  The glass has been removed to allow for better pictures.  The columns are by Lawbre, the findings are by Fancifuls, Inc., and the flooring is by WilsonArt.  The Pavilion is built in 1:12 scale - 1 inch = 1 foot.  The base of the structure is about 21" square, and 18" high.
