The object of the competition consists on designing an itinerant textile sunshade device in order to build it in a summer workshop at IFAC from August 4th to the 15th, 2013 in Covarrubias (Spain). The program is simple, around 70/100 square meters of an opened light shadow device. The use will be very flexible and open for things like talks and lectures, workspace, dining, concerts... etc.

The context doesn't exist because it will be a demountable and traveling device. It has a total developing budget for the prototype of 1,000 euros. It could be expanded if the proposal looks for a material sponsorship. This budget covers the structure material, also the tools and textiles used for covering any gear needed for the prototype.
