"The Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion was designed to raise awareness of the nearby Boston Harbor Islands—a natural resource that is only a twenty-minute boat ride from Downtown Boston. Two sculptural roof canopies define the pavilion and provide spatial definition and protection for two kiosks, a large-scale map of the islands incised into the pavement, and a permanent exhibit that highlights the rich historical and ecological diversity of the archipelago. The open-air pavilion is staffed by National Park Service rangers and personnel from the Boston Harbor Island Alliance, the Park Service’s non-profit partner.
