Text description provided by the architects. This project is simple and traditional in form, standing as an iconic image. From a distance the standless steel can be perceived as a monolithic laconic volume, with a rectangular plan, no doors, sloping roof and a maximum height of 5m.

When viewed closely, the unsteady permeable characteristics are hard to miss, with curtains of metal chain. The surface is an opalescent and oscillating surface, responding to touch. Visitors can enter from anywhere with the subtle clanking of chains all around and rustling gravel beneath their feet.
