Responding to an RFP given out by the city of New York, we proposed a temporary installation of custom umbrellas to be opened for the months of May - September and serve as a seasonal cafe. The structure would be easily assembled, disassembled, and stored.
Strips of fabric mesh coordinated with the building’s terra cotta tile roof are stretched between cables at different heights providing shade over the exterior cafe seating and borrowing from the language of the Greenmarket canopies that will continue to surround the pavilion during market days.
