Description
This is a recreation of the Heydon Pavilion as featured in the excellent 99% Invisible podcast.[99percentinvisible.org] In order to get the full effect, I highly recommend listening to the episode before visiting the environment.

This otherworldly structure was designed by Joseph Kinnebrew for his friends Rita and Peter Heydon. Over time, the location has become a secret hangout spot for some of the local teens, much to the vexation of its owners. The pavilion was given the nickname “Heyoon” after some visitors saw the words “Heydon Pavilion” etched in a glass plaque at the top of the stairs and mistook the “D” for an “O”.

Out of respect for the privacy of the Heydons, the location of the "real-life" pavilion is kept secret. However, with this virtual recreation, you can now visit Heyoon yourself, and even bring along your own set of friends. It is a virtual sanctuary for your serenity and enjoyment. As always, please be respectful of the structure and to whomever you may meet there.

About Myself:
I am a graphic designer currently living in California. This is my first virtual reality environment. Although most of my work has been in graphic design and motion graphics, I am excited about using VR to create unique experiences that would otherwise be impossible. My other design work can be viewed at https://aaronsmith.design
