We are pleased to announce that the “UMBRA_vela” project by SHRM has won the latest DesignByMany challenge: “A Rapidly-Deployable Shade Structure” The challenge asked professionals and students in the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) community to submit a proposal to design a rapidly-deployable shade structure that could just as easily be deployed during a day at the beach or park, or while in a desert environment..
UMBRA_vela was chosen by a select group of judges, including: Andrew Payne, David Benjamin and Kevin Klinger. We’d like to thank our judges very much for taking the time to go through the 30+ entries.
For winning the HP-supported challenge, SHRM will take home a brand-new HP Designjet T790 24″ PostScript ePrinter. This solution is one of the latest additions to the HP web-connected ePrinter portfolio, making large-format printing easy and offering instant file access to design professionals. With the HP Designjet T790 ePrinter, users can simply plug and print directly from a USB thumb drive or connect a laptop directly to the device to print with driverless printing. Users can also print directly from the web without a computer and preview projects through the large-format industry’s only color touchscreen interface. Big thanks to our Media Partner ArchDaily. Again, without them we would not have had the amazing turn out that we did!
UMBRA_vela will also be featured on ArchDaily in the coming weeks so be on the lookout for that.
