Updated Design

 

We decided to add a facet to our project that would turn the solar awning into an art installation. As pictured below, the idea is to use scrap pieces of metal to create a kind of turtle shell that would add a back wall to the bench. This would serve as an art installation as well as protection from the shade. The solar panels are still being supported by a frame and the turtle shell is to be added to the back of the frame as a non load bearing visually appealing aspect of our solar awning.
