Repurpose Canopy
Repurpose Philadelphia - Recycling canopy for community gatherings Philadelphia


The canopy’s distinct look takes cues from the geometry of laundry lines in populous cities as a ubiquitous sight of urban life from around the world. The geometry of the Repurpose canopy Philadelphia was designed to emit both openness and public intimacy as well as its intricate appearance. The canopy was erected, used and dismantled in a single day. All the materials use for the canopy were further recycled or returned to primary users. The cost of the entire installation was ~$1,100. >>
