The project consists of a vast circular roof that levitates gently and meets the height of the treetops surrounding the building; a series of perforations let natural top light pass through, as does the dense and generous foliage of the park.
The roof’s interior houses a series of rooms and a library; below it shelters a free-flowing space that welcomes group events and activities for visitors; and the exhibition rooms are placed underground. The whole builidng is fully integrated in its context.
