WINNER OF FOLLY/FUNCTION COMPETITION 2017 WITH CIRCLE SHADE- 2πR4
CIRCLE SHADE- 2πR4
A PORTABLE AND DEMOUNTABLE CANOPY SHADE STRUCTURE
A light and minimal tripod figure anchored to weighty feet lifts a circle shade radiating Socrates Sculpture Park’s character and energy of wheel. As a constellation in the Landscape, a playful composition of dynamic structures emerges, alluding to delightful dancing discs, spinning shadows and captured cloud follies connecting ground with sky.
Designed by Eva Jensen Design and developed in collaboration with Laufs Engineering Design. EJD conceived a refined and minimal design that emphasizes simplicity, transparency, and versatility inspired by a fundamental shape: the circle. The structure is based on the tripod concept for fast assembly in three simple steps. It consists of only 7 components: 1 canopy disk, 3 poles and 3 cylindrical counter weights.The system is created as a low budget 21st century high-tech structure with rigid moment frame connections detailed as high strength 3D printed node joints.
A single unit anchors a space, allowing for a range of events to take place under its shadow. The canopy tilts with a greeting gesture, and celebrates the Socrates Sculpture Park logo as form and functional branding. In sequence the structures can rotate in position to one another creating a variation of spaces in the park landscape.
