The Backpack Rack is a storage project designed to hold backpacks for students during large assemblies while also enhancing the school campus as an art piece. It was originally designed by myself and my team as a group of tensile structures that would be portable and put throughout campus. It was then redesigned as a metal sculpture that would not only hold backpacks but would also enhance school spirit on campus.
