In summer’s days, a lot of people go and come from the San Juan’s beach. We look for a shelter to protect traveller in (from) the sunny hot days in Alicante, since sun in these parts is ungrateful at some hours of the day.

Video: Built.

Conceptual video

We designed a huge white arch, palm leaf shaped, which is born from the ground and raises until 4 meters high, casting 60 meters of shadow. This is the most important objective.
