Solar Canopies

University of South Carolina
Columbia, SC

With the newly designed Recreational fields at USC's Blatt PE center, an opportunity arose to create covered viewing areas for these new fields on the existing pedestrian overpass which provides prime overlooks of the activities below. A steel structure anchored to the exiting concrete bents of the bridge creates the skeleton of the canopies, and photovoltaic panels are used as the roofing. These solar canopies provide unique shaded viewing areas during the day will provide the power to light the pedestrian bridge at night, serving as a prime example of the university's commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly design.
