OPENING OF CIRCLE SHADE- 2πR4

CIRCLE SHADE- 2πR4
FOUR PORTABLE AND DEMOUNTABLE SHADE STRUCTURES
Designed by Eva Jensen Design and developed in collaboration with Laufs Engineering Design.
EJD conceived CIRCLE SHADE-2πR4 as a minimal design that emphasizes simplicity and versatility inspired by a fundamental shape: the circle.
The structure is developed by Eva Jensen Design as a kit of parts to create a shading structure that incorporates outdoor furniture for simple assembly in a few steps. The system is based on the structural tripod concept, and consists of only seven components: one canopy, three poles and three cylindrical counterweights. The system is fabricated as a refined 21st century high-tech structure with rigid moment frame connections detailed as high strength 3D printed joint nodes.
CIRCLE SHADE-2πR4 consists of a unique combination of the three main components: a circular canopy, tripod support poles attaching to cylindrical drum counterweights. This order allows for the circular canopy to easily connect to the poles with custom-designed high strength structural 3D printed joint nodes. These are variably detailed and interlaced with the shade membrane to collectively pitch the canopy. 3D printing facilitates the affordable fabrication of the custom joint nodes.
A single unit anchors a space, allowing for a range of events to take place in its shadow beneath the canopy. The concrete counterweights serve as additional seating, display surface and step stools during set up. In sequence the structures can rotate in position to one another creating a variation of spaces in the park landscape.
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.
