The Madrid based ParedesPino Arquitectos recently completed this urban installation of permanent parasols, the Centro Abierto de Actividades Ciudadanas (CAAC), in Cordoba in the south of Spain.

The central piazza is located close to the train station and is venue for a market twice a week. The prefabricated parasols shade this higly frequented open space, solve the artificial lighting and allow drainage of water inside.
