Leaf Pergola, Mosspits School, Liverpool

Leaf Canopy 1IMG_2124.JPGIMG_2128.JPGIMG_2126.JPG Based loosely on a Sweat Chestnut leaf, the pergola also drew on early aeronautical timber design to try and make something that floated over the playground. The school where then going to get a canopy made to cover it when funds allowed. Structure is made from Douglas Fir, mostly traditionally jointed, with some very complicated compound angles, and a few steel flitch plates where necessary. Completed in July 2014 along with an Apple Shelter.
