Pedestrian Crossing by Atelier 9.81

Atelier 9.81 of France have inserted a perforated canopy in between a row of houses to create a covered pedestrian walkway in Tourcoing, France.

The structure is made from a composite of aluminium and plastic with a series of folds to create a roof over the passage.

Graphics are applied to this surface, directing visitors between the new bus station on one side, and a tram and subway station on the other.
