Description: Wickiup Encampment brings an indigenous aesthetic to the ‘shade blanket’ element of this dual-canopied seating area providing shade for a Serpentine Bench. Wickiup Overlook, a hexagonal shade canopy that references contemporary materials often used in aircraft manufacturing, provides shade to the Prism Bench comprised of three interlocking prism-shaped pieces of polished Texas red granite.
