Shadow of time / Shade

Shadow of time
Shadow of time

The shade has been designed to make the students be aware of the fact that they spend most of their time in the campus. Our normal lifes depend on the class times. Not rotation of the sun. trio shades starts to the day as imbricated at direction of the sun. the shades turn and spread with the sun simultaneously. Three shades open completely at noon is the most crowded time when all students are at grass area. afternoon the shades begin to close. The shades have solar panels which can be used as lighting. after sunset the shades return oppositely. at midnight open completely like at noon.
