The historic neighborhood of East Baltimore in Maryland, USA, has experienced the ultimate revival, with a beautiful new park as the centerpiece. Vector Foiltec installed a single layer Texlon® ETFE application at Eager Park. The 200 m² Texlon® ETFE canopy added a covered outdoor usable space to the park. The T. Rowe Price pavilion is one of the park elements bringing the community together.

The special print on the ETFE foil helps to provide shade and light in a comfortable ratio. Evenly spread, the specialized print pattern on the ETFE foil covers 50 percent of the system. At night, the whole canopy is illuminated and an eye-catcher in the revitalized neighborhood.

Gensler and their partner Mahan Rykiel Associates Landscape Architects designed Eager Park together with the local community.
