This unique canopy developed for the University Of Wyoming College Of Education constitutes a covered walkway as well as a visual link among adjacent campus buildings. Front worked on the concept design of the multi-layered canopy assembly. Our scope involved detailing the perforated, glazed metal soffit, which is covered by a layer of glass. The resulting awning allows for the passage of light through the metal perforations that creates an ethereal glowing pattern of morphing shadows while simultaneously protecting pedestrians from inclement weather.
