Proposal for Jacob Riis Park, Queens, 2015 [ + ]
Like a beach blanket that protects you from the sand, the Sun Blanket protects you from the sun. Woven from 5-foot strips of Sunbrella Clarity fabric, the Sun Blanket covers the patio of the landmarked pavilions at Jacob Riis Park, the so-called “People’s Beach” in Rockaway, Queens. The weft of the super-scaled weave is modulated in its spacing to create different levels of shading over the patio, helping cool new public programming that has been added as of summer 2015.
