The Hive Project
I was part of a crew that built a large shade structure to serve as a communal space at Burning Flipside, central Texas' regional burn.

The structure covers about 1800 sqft, and the central tower is 20 ft tall. Square-section aluminum tubes and waterjet-cut aluminum plates were used for the structural members; other materials were coroplast, plywood, and galvanized sheetmetal. The canopies were two layers: recycled billboard vinyl on the outside, radiant barrier on the inside.

That's really splendid! The mix of components and applications is truly compelling - I instantly started trying to conjure events where hiring it would be appropriate.
