This is a design build project for clients at the David Lawrence Convention Center. They have planter bed on the roof of the building for fresh produce and wish to extend their growing season by making the planter beds into green houses. The project materials entailed metal conduit tubes and green house plastic. We used velcro as attachment mechanisms. This design has a modular system that scales up in line with wind path to reduce stress from wind. The modularity also facilitates the building process and the install.
