Phoenix Parasol

Competition entry designed in collaboration with Marissa Tirone.

 

Shade structures in the desert and zero entry fees sparked ideas to design and submit the project in five days. The original submission explored a flexible form that could accommodate varied site conditions. Post-deadline, additional design research and experimentation focused on the canopy, form, reach, shading effects and intricacy.
