- Awning: An awning or overhang is a secondary covering attached to the exterior wall of a building. It is typically composed of canvas woven of acrylic, cotton or polyester yarn, or vinyl laminated to polyester fabric that is stretched tightly over a light structure of aluminium, iron or steel, possibly wood or transparent material. The configuration of this structure is something of a truss, space frame or planar frame. Awnings are also often constructed of aluminium understucture with aluminium sheeting. These aluminium awnings are often used when a fabric awning is not a practical application where snow load as well as wind loads may be a factor.

- Awning is an outdoor 1976 painted aluminum sculpture by Canadian artist Douglas Senft, located near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Market Street in downtown Portland, Oregon. The 60-foot sculpture was selected and funded by the Portland Development Commission from more than 200 proposals in a request for art intended to "humanize the modern architecture" of the Portland Center. Senft was 26 years old when Awning was installed. It is part of the collection of the Regional Arts & Culture Council. The yellow-colored work is mounted to the side of 200 Market along a pedestrian trail that serves as an extension of Third Avenue.

- Copper awning - pre-restoration
Side / Ballroom Entrance
At some point the original glass panels were broken - probably by falling snow / ice from the overhanging roof line - and replaced with plexiglass panels and a retrofitted copper gutter. The gutter was tied into the existing gutter for drainage. This renovated design turned out to be a poor one. The seals at the rear of the awning failed, causing water to run down the side of the house (note the rust stains on the stucco). The plexiglass panels warped causing the water to pool on top instead of draining, and the gutter system never really worked as hoped.
