This is my school's assembly area :
The place is generally used for the assembly and various other things. But the problem is that it receives a lot of sunlight and it is difficult to use it during the later part of the day.
So, I would like something like a roof, which doesn't entirely block out sunlight but makes the place a little more comfortable.
One thing I have thought of is installing small nets or rods and then growing creepers on it which would act as a roof. But I am unsure whether this is practical.
P.S. I am new to lifehacks.SE and so am not sure whether this question rightly belongs to the site or not. So, please mention in the comments if it is off-topic.
All kinds of solutions are welcome but it would be great if the solution is eco-friendly. Thanks.
