Dube Canopy forms the public centerpiece of the Dube Tradeport Urban Development near King Shaka international airport in Durban, providing shade to the square below.
The undulating gridshell’s form takes its cues from the forces acting on it, and the support geometry.
This canopy is believed to be the first fully free-form steel and glass gridshell in Africa
