The parabolic shape of the pavilion counters the rectilinear form of the Modernist buildings on the campus. The hypar touches down on the North Plaza at one end, where steps lead up to the “Illumination Lawn,” a sloping, 7,200-square-foot, grass-covered public space. Lifting up at two opposing corners, the structure carves out space for Lincoln, an 11,000-squarefoot restaurant on two levels, with the undulating curvature of the lawn creating the roof. Three separate dining areas comprise the interior, each occupying a space with a different ceiling height. A glass curtain wall framed by the restaurant’s contoured wood ceiling gives patrons front-row seats to the activity around the reflecting pool, the Henry Moore sculpture, and the architectural masterpieces on the campus. The 60- by 17-foot, glass-enclosed kitchen, which serves 160 diners and 40 at the bar, is located in the center, enabling diners and passersby to watch the chef and his staff create culinary works of art. This project is part of Lincoln Center’s program to renew its 16-acre urban campus. ■ 18 Oculus Summer 2011 a ©Iwan Baan Jury: “It is in the middle of New York City and it’s green!
