This pavilion functions like a sort of sundial. It shows the movements of the sunlight and the wind on one day and makes it into something to experience through an architectural space.
The entire structure of the facade can rotate due to the wind on its arms. One can enter the space by walking along to its rotation. When inside a small glasshouse made of photo-luminescent material catches the sunbeams coming through the openings in the facade. Because of the rotation combined with the beams of light, a ribbon of luminance raps around the glass house, showing the rhythm and strength of the elements: light and wind.
