Tasked with creating a greenhouse that is mounted upon a concrete planter and could take any plant grown within it through the first frost of Pittsburgh. These hoop houses would be temporarily mounted at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Downtown Pittsburgh. The materials to be used were heat shrink plastic, aluminium conduit, and multiple joining mechanisms such as nuts and bolts. The following project dealt with the issues of strong wind forces through streamlining and ease of access.
