Dominic Froio Memorial Sculptural Canopies

Dominic Froio Memorial Sculptural Canopies

Drawing

The Bloomingdale Public Library’s Dominic Froio Memorial Garden pays homage to what its late benefactor held most dfear to him, his daughter, and an embrace of cultural diversity. The outdoor space is ornamented with 16 dragonfly wing sculptural canopies that symbolize each of the years that Dominic’s daughter, Donna Beth, spent living. The colors of the dragonfly wings, which change in variant light, are a celebration of the diversity of cultures and ethnicities that comprise the fabric of the Illinois community.

The McLaren Difference

McLaren’s entertainment team provided structural engineering services to evaluate the four identical static canopy structures that stand approximately 12 feet tall. Each art piece contains four vertical poles that emerge from a base and are topped with a single cantilevered dragonfly wing with perforated metal skin. Our team worked with the client to revise the design to satisfy the environmental loads and code requirements while still retaining the aesthetic design intent and deeper meaning of the memorial sculptural canopies.

The Dominic Froio Memorial Garden officially opened September 25, 2021.
