RETRACTABLE UMBRELLAS, TEMPLE BAR

This unique project involved the installation of four fully retractable umbrellas into Meeting House Square in Temple Bar. This innovative design by Sean Harrington Architects comprises four 21-metre high structural steel structures, which supports an asymmetric umbrella, measuring approximately 11-metres by 14-metres. The umbrellas were designed and manufactured by MDT-Tex in Germany specifically for Meeting House Square and provide the Square with the maximum amount of protection from the rain. Fearon O’Neill Rooney were responsible for the underground Civil Engineering Works for the project including the design of the piled foundations for the four umbrellas.
