Period & Style
Cambodian artist Sopheap Pich's A Room fills the Efroymson Family Entrance Pavilion with nearly 1,200 real and artificial bamboo strips extending 40 feet from the atrium's ceiling to floor. The 26-foot space inside the bamboo is a place for contemplation, allowing visitors to experience natural light bouncing off of and piercing between the bamboo strips to evoke the sense of light within Cambodia's bamboo forests. In using bamboo, Pich creates a contrast between the aluminum, glass, and cement structure of the Pavilion, the warmth of the bamboo and the various bright and subtle colors of the different bamboo castings.
