Sun Valley Pavilion and Lawn
Sun Valley Pavilion is located at the Sun Valley Resort
300 Dollar Road • Sun Valley, Idaho • 83353
The design for the Sun Valley Pavilion, located at the Sun Valley Resort, was inspired by its natural setting. It has become a community gathering place for performances and events.
The roofline mirrors the mountains and sky and is structured by a huge main truss, supporting a permanent copper header and steel cable net. A seasonal luminous tensile membrane covers 1,600 seats, the stage, and support facilities. The surrounding landscape is sculpted into an undulating park gently elevated into a natural amphitheater, with views of Trail Creek Canyon, Dollar Mountain, and Bald Mountain.
