Umbrella go round - Architecture for Humanity

The Architecture for Humanity - Auckland Chapter found a great way to beat the often lamented wet Auckland weather for Architecture Week. They gathered together old lost umbrellas, fixed them up and painted the fabric using Environmental Choice approved Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel tinted to Resene Japanese Laurel. The Resene Lustacryl has worked so well on the umbrellas that most people don't realise they are painted.

Architecture for Humanity

The umbrellas were housed in special umbrella stands and Aucklanders were encouraged to take the umbrellas when they needed them and return them to the umbrella stands ready for the next Aucklander who had to make a mad dash through the rain.
