Kilifi Shade Structure was built by Robert Fung Studio in December 2018 for the Kilifi New Year 2019 Festival on the Kenyan Coast. The project was constructed over the course of a month using only locally grown and sourced materials, Eucalyptus timbers, Sisal poles and ropes.

The Kilifi Shade Structure was designed to keep festivals goers cool during the heat of the day at the sites main stage, it is a permanent structure that will be used for future events. It is certainly the only structure along this length of Kenya cost that parametric design tools were used and definitely the only one built using local tradesmen and traditional materials and techniques.
