To design a new facility for the existing courtyard for corporate events to seat up to 500 people for formal dinners.

The New Canopy will sit on the courtyard, which is a roof to the five-story basement below. It has the facility to remain open for open-air activities through out the year.

It can be enclosed using innovative air cushions like lilos, which can be blown up and hung in place to create a rigid enclosure, and then deflated for easy dismantling and storage | VIEW PDF
