For the urbanShed design contest, in which designers had to rethink New York City's (less than visually appealing) sidewalk sheds, designer Young-Hwan Choi created the NYC Urban Umbrella concept. He won.

Choi's NYC Urban Umbrella concept offers beautiful replacements for the old plywood, beams and bolted sheds on the city's pavements. Not only do the urban umbrella designs offer sustainable protection for pedestrians, they are also vibrant and colorful, enhancing the city's aesthetics.

Implications - Mayor Bloomberg even went as far as to agree that this public pavement umbrella design is very practical for building owners. This design truly is beneficial for both pedestrians and building owners alike.
