Students: Kiren Kelly-Sneed, Theresa Zaro, Royce Chow

All shop drawings and calculations were done by the students and it cost about $20,000. The 12 footings that hold the cables all connect underground for strength and stability. The purpose of this structure was to provide shade for the annual design village project held in the canyon every year. A structure using fabric as a material. Royce Chow, who worked on the project as a student, later had his marriage ceremony beneath the structure.
