Sumika Pavilion by Toyo Ito & Associates, Architects The outer walls and roof of this 9 meters by 9 meters (29.5 feet by 29.5 feet) pavilion is supported by laminated timber frame arranged at 60 and 120 degree angles. Internally, four columns support the roof. The timber pattern appears random, imparting a fractured, forest-like ambience.
