Appreciations towards Michan Architecture for providing the following description:


When entering the space, the box has a completely different logic and becomes a subtraction of an inverted vault. A concavity is presented within a continuous surface without roof. An oasis within the chaotic historic city center.

The pavilion ( ) was design as a mute space on the outside but with an intriguing contradiction on its inside.
