Australian design firm Büro North has partnered with the Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab to produce what they’re calling, Veil Solar Shades. Essentially giant solar panels, the panels are designed to also give shade to those who sit beneath them. Similarly designed to that of a leaf (see the link between photosynthesis and shade?), the giant structures are adjustable in terms of which direction they should point for optimal sunlight.
