Designed to adapt when a light parade is beneath along the walkway or over bazaar booths aside the walkway, the structure is one-sidedly supported. The materials of the coated wood for the roofing and corrugated fiberglass packaging and structural support helps leverage the light weight of the structure for ease of transport and assembly. The challenge lies to rethink roofing elements of a parade or circus by identifying the elements of structure in relation to the functionality of the the object as a whole and defining the process of its assembly thought development of it technical details.
