Each umbrella has been prefabricated and varies in both height and diameter. Moreover, by equipping each umbrella with a light [1], the space can be occupied at all hours,  avoiding the plight that often comes with parks of this size when night falls. Instead, the illumination [1] activates a completely different experience as compared to the day, but remains equally as charming and secure.

Opened just a few months ago, this new square has become a major draw to both locals and tourists alike. The sunshade arrangement across the vast space is an incredible play of both shadow and light, creating a dynamic city center accessible to everyone.
