Flying Colors - The Tension Canopy

This junior studio project resulted in the very colorful awning shown in this image. This was suspended by cables over the walkway on the north side of Quigley Hall where it was in full view of the kids who use the playground for the Child Development Laboratory at SIUC.

Walking below the awning was, indeed, a very colorful experience. This was the intention of the designers. The bright colors, moving in the breezes, really excited the kids and caught the attention of a photographer from the regional newspaper, The Southern Illinoisan.

The project seen here was created by Andrew Malinowski, David Oliva, and Greg Perkins in Professor Stewart Wessel's studio.
