Jazz at the Pavilion
Architect: RdlR Architects
On Sept. 13, 2008, Hurricane Ike ripped through The Woodlands. High winds knocked down thousands of trees and power lines and devastated the iconic Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, destroying Horst Berger’s beautiful 20-year-old tensile fabric canopy. As the membrane shredded and tension in the structure released, the foundation of the steel truss and pylons shifted. The venue was wrecked and the remainder of the 2008 performance season was canceled.
