SHELTER

Working together with Seattle City Light and the Seattle Parks Department, bARC designed a photovoltaic panel installation as a picnic shelter for the Seattle Children’s Playgarden (SCP). The design intent of the picnic shelter is to educate the public on the benefits of solar power generation while providing an accessible shade spot to get out of the sun. Due to funding limitations the solar picnic structure was not completed at the SCP; however, the design was implemented at Jefferson Park and opened to the public in July of 2012.
