The 3D printed performance pavilion was gifted to the Long Center by ICON as a tribute to the work and legacy of the Long Center: the arts, creative culture, and community.

During SXSW, ICON announced a collaboration with El Cosmico owner Liz Lambert and BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group to reimagine and rebuild the El Cosmico development in Marfa, Texas.

The pavilion brings a taste of that project to Austin. The 3D printed pavilion took 2 weeks of print time to complete. Then, additional design elements such as the tile, stage, benches and steel Halo were added.
