For an existing building in downtown Detroit EOA proposed to renovate the facade using a corrugated perforated metal screen interspersed with terracotta tubing. The terracotta is a reference to the existing terracotta facades that are still seen in the city, thankfully saved from demolition. We used the terracotta like thread, creating canopies to shade cafe dwellers and pedestrians passing through and stitching it vertically up the facade.
