Design of project aim in many principles: an ecological understanding of the project, a flexible structure, which can be adept to different surroundings and creating a comfortable atmosphere in a unique environment.

The project uses bamboo and natural local materials as a structural element. The focus was to create a connection which leaves no impact on the site, so after the temporary building deconstructed, the materials can be reused for any other project or if you leave the building after many years is going to be again one with nature.

Inspiring architecture from nature will help to find ways for safe guarding the biodiversity of the environment from being destroyed. We have to see
 how architecture will help to develop a culture of active environmental design which will not only reduce the negative environmental impacts but will also creates a positive environmental, social and economic solutions.
