Developing on the longitudinally existing structure of the pavilion, the new shade has been designed as a sequence of different spaces dedicated to the game.
The cover of the new canopy is composed by a sequence of channel-beams folded into sheets of 3mm thick, overlapping along the entire length of the deck every 50cm, channelling rain water and protecting from solar radiation.
The structure, with no diagonals, disappears between two sheets of polycarbonate, thereby creating a smooth and translucent membrane.
To facilitate visual control, visibility extends to the maximum horizontal area of the courtyard, where play areas are defined by a fence-abacus, inviting children to play together without perceived barriers. A landscape of small rubber hills and miscellaneous playground items created especially for the completed project provides space for recreation.
