Spanish Artists Decorate The Shopping District In Malaga With A Colorful Crocheted Canopy

Published 1 month ago

With temperatures reaching record heights this year, everyone is doing whatever they can to escape the scorching summer heat. And when it comes to escaping the heat, sometimes simply finding a shadow can be a godsend. That’s where awnings, umbrellas and canopies come into play.

Instead of erecting a plastic canopy like they usually do, the Spanish city of Malaga came up with a more creative and environmentaly friendly way. Three years ago, the city’s Department of the Environment hired local crochet teacher Eva Pacheco who along with her students created a massive colorful canopy that runs along Malaga’s shopping district. Pacheco and her students add new material to the existing sunshade each summer, and it currently covers an area of a whopping 500 square meters.

Check out the stunning colorful canopy in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
