What's wrong with gazebo?

I've always understood a gazebo to be a place of shelter (necessitating a roof) where one could "gaze" at the scenery. This provides neither shelter no view and is, in fact, more like something to be gazed upon, which has no other practical use - hence my leaning toward a folly.

It's a hypeathral. Sometimes called temple of the sky.

It's just possible that I've never heard that term before. Thanks.

"Garden structure" would work for me. 😄

I think I learned this here, keep it down to a Grade 6 level so nobody gets confused.

Oh, heck, this thing wasn't even mentioned in the report. It wasn't even near the house. I was just curious.

Even so, "I like yer hypeathral" could get you a slap in the face. Be careful with this new knowledge.  😄

 

(I was too yellow to be seen near the movie theaters, and doubt if it even came here. 😆)

I just Googled hypeathral and this thread was the 4th return. When I queried "define hypeathral, the return was, "did you mean hypaethral"

You knew it was a word and what it meant.  I pointed out the typo because I remember images of words and I figured others might too.

I don't know what to call it but mofogazebo or gazebississimo, but it must be a current undercurrent in people's thinking.  My wife is lobbying for me to build something stout, outdoors, and open to weather.
