civic canopy

Civic Canopy is an open, expansive timber roof that overlays and links greenscape, hardscape, and waterscape covering vehicle drop off, ferry boarding area, park zones and water inlets. Like the tree canopy it intersects, it offers shade in the summer months and direct sunlight in the winter months. The new roof acknowledges the diurnal shifts in weather and populations, transforming over the year with a series of modifications both spectacular and invisible. The canopy warps, bends and breaks to accommodate natural and programmatic features. Trees emerge through its openings, enclosed and conditioned areas are formed through puckers in its surface. The resulting undulating form is both liquid and solid, transparent and opaque, reflecting a merger of water and land.
