A series overhead fabric canopies and street level furniture for Paradise Plaza create a unique pedestrian environment for the Miami Design District. The canopies create a forest like experience, with diffused light and shadows, and rain protection through strategically located slits and twists within the canopies. BüroEhring provided conceptual structural design of the canopies, including parametric modeling, form optimization, and design of the fabric systems. The competition entry won the Innovative Entry Prize.
