Famous architect Zaha Hadid designed a new structure along New York's High Line, and to thoughtfully minimize the effect of this building's construction, she also created an overhanging canopy. This canopy shields pedestrians both physically and visually from the construction going on above.

Mixing mediums to create this functional work of architecture, Hadid used a metal frame for the structure, draped silver fabric on top and finally set a long black wooden box over it. The fluid sloping canopy adheres to a safety regulation requiring protective sheds to be built for construction along New York's High Line. Hadid beautified this building requirement, showcasing her creativity and dedication to design.

This dedication sets an example for other architects to stylishly design each structure used in the construction process of a final product -- beautifying cities' building developments.
