The city of Agueda has once again decorated some of their streets with colorful canopies of umbrellas.
 
The installation Umbrellas Canopy, is part of the Agitagueda art festival. Portuguese design firm Sextafeira Produções created this stunning installation to turn traditional shopping streets into a colorful and exciting visual experience.
 
Like last year, photographer Patrícia Almeida has captured some great shots, giving everyone a chance to take a virtual walk in the most colorful street of Portugal. © Ivo Tavares studio

Suspended Structure

Product definition

The Suspended Structure is an architectural object that hangs above the area to intervene, defining the space and providing with different types of functions from above.
 
It is an intervention in which the architectural object intervenes in the space without touching it, yet interacts with the space from above. The interaction happens in the interface between the “ceiling” that the hanging object provides and the spaces bellow, where the users stand.
 
The hanging object aims to promote an alternative kind of public space interaction with a more artistic approach, in which the interface is uncommonly produced from above. This enhances the outdoor experience and triggering new social dynamics that convert the site into a highly recognizable place.
