Paris Flood Prevention Spillway Pavilion Bar




Pavilion BarThe pavilion bar designed by Margot Krasojevic is part of Paris’ flood control infrastructure. An enclosed circular glass bar rests over a bell mouth spillway which allows water to enter from it’s entire perimeter, directing the water throoughout the design, into the spillway.
