The Central Park Midsummer’s Haven was created to enhance and support the existent activities in the park, providing shelter and establishing a temporary landmark to the great American park. Its structure is composed by a canopy made out of 35 tree-inspired 7 meters wide hexagonal modules. Each module feature a steel column structure supporting inclined metal tubes, covered with translucent Eco resin panels, in the season’s colors, tones of orange and red. Below the canopy, an elevated wood deck shapes the pedestrian path. Uses are divided in 3 different sections: in one corner there’s a relaxation area, with a net where visitors are able to lay and chill out, and in the other one, an exhibitions area, in which the dense vegetation around it creates a pleasant environment. The central section is composed by a very flexible space that can host a large range of events: from concerts to fashions shows, plays or an open-air disco. Its flexibility is due to its modular stage, where acrylic triangles conform the different uses.
