The introduction of a series of large "umbrella's" canopies within the shopping mall was used as a walking trail. The 4 structures cover an area of approximately 1240m2. The "umbrella" canopy is designed as a reverse elliptical conical tensile membrane structure with a carried by 1 steel post with an average height of 25m and a maximum width of 2m diameter. The major axis of the elliptical conical canopy measures up to 23,25m and the minor axis up to 16,84m. The manufacture and installation of the system was finished in approximately 2 months. Offering service since 2013, this structure has become an inseparable part as well as a landmark of the Erasta Shopping Mall with its feature of creating a domestic and relaxing space due to its aesthetic and form.
