Solar protection for primary schools
Solar protection for primary schools is often carried out as a
flat piece of fabric. This cheap option causes the incoming
sunlight is blocked. However, the sight is also taken away, and it
prevents the natural ventilation.
To solve this problem, two students developed the "tensegrity
sunshading system". This ensures to keep the sunlight outside but
still retain the ability to look outside. Also the natural
ventilation is retained by the choice of fabric.
