Rain was built for the Dinner x Design Charity Event hosted by the Design Exchange during winter 2016 through Moriyama and Teshima Architects.  Other team members included Carol Phillips, Phil Silverstein, Hamia Aghaiee, and Alice Chernoff.  The 10 person dinner pavilion was inspired by being caught in the rain with strangers. Using parametric computer modelling along with dynamic lighting, the pavilion cycled from day to night over the course of the dinner.
