When not utilised as a tasting pavilion for eco/tourists, the covered platforms become recreational fishing piers for local fishermen, who bring their families to the platform with fishing poles, bait, and hooks in order to catch a variety of local fish naturally drawn to the clean, shellfish-filtered waters surrounding the oyster and mussel bundles in the waters below.
The pavilion design innovates from existing every day, sustainable, inexpensive materials, labour, and construction techniques.
Like traditional oyster scaffoldings, the new scaffolding is built entirely by Angsila fishermen, utilising local shallow-ocean bamboo construction techniques that require no power tools.
The fishermen manually drive each bamboo column into the ocean floor, 'pogo-stick' style.
Rejected car seatbelts, acquired at a discount due to discolouration from local auto plants, are used to tie all of the bamboo members together.
A graphic red (complementing the greenish bay waters), light-filtering agricultural tarp, commonly used in nearby nurseries, shades visitors from the ocean sun, yet allows for the passage of ocean breezes.
