With temperatures reaching record heights this year, everyone is doing whatever they can to escape the scorching summer heat. And when it comes to escaping the heat, sometimes simply finding a shadow can be a godsend. That’s where awnings, umbrellas and canopies come into play.

Instead of erecting a plastic canopy like they usually do, the Spanish city of Malaga came up with a more creative and environmentaly friendly way. Three years ago, the city’s Department of the Environment hired local crochet teacher Eva Pacheco who along with her students created a massive colorful canopy that runs along Malaga’s shopping district. Pacheco and her students add new material to the existing sunshade each summer, and it currently covers an area of a whopping 500 square meters.

Check out the stunning colorful canopy in the gallery below!
