The United World College Swimming Center needed a canopy. Structurflex met the challenge of a tight budget and strict local building regulations coupled with local temperatures reaching over 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius).
Swimmers could easily keep cool by taking a dip in the pools, but spectators had a much more difficult time with the hot sun beating on their necks.
