Sunflower inspired multifunctional area

This installation is a great place to chill before/after school and it is also contributing to the water collecting system.

The nature-inspired part of the installation is the shading unit, which is adjustable. According to the user's wish, it can provide shadow or allow the sun to shine on the seating area and when it it rainy, it also provides shelter from water. The shading plane can be turned around an axis manually to reach the wished state. This design provides solution for those who like to lie in the sun and those who prefer chilling in the shadows.
The tiling around the unit in the middle is contributing to the effective water collecting and leads the rainwater to the drains around the chilling spot.
