Definition
a large structure separate from a main structure
in various senses, including:
  • a large roofed structure without walls — often found in parks
  • a temporary structure — such as a large tent to house exhibits at a fair, to provide sports facilities, or to put on a show
  • a section of a large hospital or office complex adjacent to other parts
  • We pushed aside curtains that were like pavilions, and felt over innumerable feet of dark wall for electric light switches — once I tumbled with a sort of splash upon the keys of a ghostly piano.
