structures for our sustainable planet


Tensioned fabric structure

A newly built school comes with many opportunities for sport & play to maximize educational experiences. In order to enhance this, LIGHTWEIGHT WORKS has designed a structure to protect students from direct rain & sun.

The solution is a demountable, lightweight, open-sided tent that is shaped to protect students from wind, rain, and sun coming from the East. The solution opens up to the playground in the West.

LIGHTWEIGHT WORKS has designed this solution to integrate into the existing landscape to create a natural and practical solution that protects students from the tropical weather conditions of Hong Kong.
