The shelter's design takes inspiration from the human instinct to shield oneself from the sun's intense heat by using their hands. The structural system is based on a series of ribs, between which glass panels are placed. The design comprises of two primary structures, with one being of a lesser height than the other to ensure ample sunlight reaches the trees in the center. The shelter features a beautifully curated mini garden, which visitors can admire from a comfortable bench or explore on foot.
The two structures have been meticulously designed to be divided into three distinct components: the base part, height control part, and overhead control part. The number of ribs in each structure has been standardized to ensure consistency during construction.
Each component of the shelter has been engineered with a scale factor to enable ease of curvature adjustment. This allows for precise modifications to the curvature of the structure, ensuring optimal aesthetic appeal and functionality.
The height control part has been designed with the flexibility to adjust the height of the structure based on the surrounding landscape and in harmony with the existing building. This enables a seamless integration of the shelter into its surroundings while ensuring aesthetic balance.
The overhead control part provides the functionality to adjust both the height and length of the overhang, thereby allowing for deeper or smoother curves as per user requirements. Furthermore, during the construction phase, the length of the overhang can be modified to meet specific design requirements through precise structural calculations.
To achieve symmetry in the design of the opposing structures, a symmetric factor has been thoughtfully applied. This ensures a harmonious and balanced appearance from all angles. Additionally, the width of the aisle has been designed to be adjustable, allowing for offset from the x-axis to create a welcoming entrance into the garden. This meticulous attention to detail in the design allows for a seamless and aesthetically pleasing experience for users.
Given that the shelter is a symmetric structure, identical components have been assigned the same color. This has been done to facilitate ease of parameter adjustment for users, simplifying the process of modifying the structure's design elements
