Housing sculpture and drawings by Walter De Maria, the pavilion is part of an informal art walk that links several contemporary sculptures set on a unique, 11-acre site and has won a 2017 AIANY Design Architecture Honor Award. It is the second Gluckman Tang-designed, single-artist exhibition structure on the estate.


A board-formed concrete interior frames a selection of De Maria works, and is naturally lit by a large skylight and window-wall. The skylight is supported by Alaskan Yellow Cedar rafters which, like the terrazzo-ground concrete, relate to the materials used in the earlier Noguchi Garden Pavilion (2004), while the brick exterior references the 1920s garden wall.
