Portland shade is a temoporary installation idea for Isle of Portland in UK. Isle of portland, which is famously known for it’s beautiful jurassic coastline, has also been a popular detination for many outdoor activities such as bouldering, sports climbing and water sports.

To embrace the beautiful scenery of the portland, Portland shade provide a shelter which climbers and hikers can take a rest and enjoy the landscape.

Proopsed structure consists of a minimal steel frame, which are all connected by the repetitivly wrapped by one continuous white sailing rope and weighted down by the rocks.¬† Use of one continous rope also represents the author’s wish for the longeivity of the isle and it’s secnery, borrowing the cultral references from China such as the one-long noodle.
