We designed and built 100 custom tents for the Battery Conservancy’s Midsummer Fair on June 25th and 26th, celebrating the completion of the Battery Oval!
The weekend-long event engaged the public with the region’s biodiversity, showcasing local horticulturalists and agriculturalists, and emphasizing the connection between plant and food production.
Our tents provided shade and space for vendors, those who had been carefully selected by The Battery Conservancy’s advisory board for fulfilling alternative and sustainable production goals.
Each tent was 8’ wide and 10’ deep and covered with top-of- the-line Sunbrella fabric. The versatility of the tents lend themselves to future event use!
Pvilion paired with Brooklyn Roasting to construct environmentally-conscious mobile coffee stations.
The coffee carts were made from both recycled and sustainable materials; the wooden frames were built from reclaimed basketball courts, and coffee is kept either iced or hot by Pvilion’s solar technology.
A four-point fabric tensile canopy equipped with a solar array stretches over the top of the cart, generating electricity and providing shade. The first cart was placed in the Brooklyn bridge park, near Deborah Kass’ yellow sculpture “YO/OY”.
Pvilion has engineered, fabricated, and will install a solar wrapper for the Artists for Humanity Epicenter in Boston, Massachusetts.
Pvilion’s solar trellis wrapper will enhance the aesthetic of the building as well as harvest solar energy to power the building.
Artists for Humanity (AFH) is a non-profit youth center for art, science, and enterprise. AFH’s mission is to bridge socio-economic divisions by employing talented and bright underserved high schoolers to provide creative and technical services to local businesses.
The wrapper is just one project in the Epicenter’s 52,000 square feet expansion, which will also make it the largest energy positive commercial facility on the East coast.
