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.
