Canopy.

In the Mediterranean there is a millenniums-long history of building sun screens for the comfort of those wanting to be outdoors. In this place, a new plaza, the designer creates a canopy of colorful fan-like structures. Truth be told, on the ground, they are less effective than a simple trellis, but they have a wonderful dynamism that partially makes up for their lack of effectiveness.
