The Porte Cochere from FTL Design Engineering Studios is a completely reusable and portable pavillion that is being used to serve as an interim building while the New York UN grounds are under renovation.

Porte Cochere is a modern example of an age-old wisdom: Avoid reinventing the wheel whenever possible. Stats for Prefabricated Mobile Pavilions Trending: Older & Mild
