Abstract

This space was designed by Janay Blancarte O'Leary and Guadalupe Estrada, This performance pavilion is a meeting place that encourages congregation and socialization, and it promotes health both in body and mind through the use of flexible spaces with movable and expandable elements such as walls, windows, stage, and seating areas to accommodate uses and allow for natural ventilation. The character of this performance pavilion will respond to the shared sentiments of UTSA students through their expressions of isolation, loss of connection and camaraderie with friends and family, loss of loved ones to Covid, and loss of financial security.

Description
This item was created by a UTSA undergraduate student during the Fall 2020 semester as a part of a collaborative, interdisciplinary project designed to gather, create and preserve the UTSA stories of the present for future study.
