Text description provided by the architects. In the elegant woods of Kadriorg, we added a path. A path which relies on the forest as it flutters through the woods with over 300 years of age.

I feel that the appearance of the woods slightly changes when you walk along this path. We no longer are looking up at the woods from the ground but we get closer to the leaves and sliver through the branches. It is a piece of architecture which exists for the woods as the forest exists for the architecture. We can not change the form of the forest but we think the various elements in a forest can become one entity in this condition.

I hope that we can experience a forest, architecture, and an environment which we do not know yet.
