Please describe the project specifications

This project consisted of four square columns supporting a large tensioned shade sail with a graphic of the school mascot sewn into the sail. The school principle wanted to continue to inspire the students on campus by incorporating the logo into multiple installations throughout campus.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The contract of the light grey logo sewn into the black shade sail instills school pride amongst the students. The structure was designed to provide supplemental shade coverage in a courtyard already served by 4 hip structures but didn’t provide enough quality shade for the area to be utilized as planned. The addition of this structure now allows students to spend time outdoors between classes with far less sun exposure than before.
