A new use for old signs creates shade for community, credentials for students

The ropes course at the City Park in New Orleans has a new sun shade thanks to the work of a team of Tulane architecture students who partnered with the Louisiana Outdoor Outreach Program.

Geodesic designs are a modernistic structure that uses triangular panels to form a greater whole, which can be built into a sphere or a variety of irregular shapes. The Tulane students saw an opportunity to build a geodesic shade that matched the lines and feel of the ropes course on site. That’s when the real innovation happened.
