We purposely aimed for people to feel nature from something artificial, instead of just reproducing nature.

Toward this end, we decided to create a "stream in a pond," which is a mysterious environment that does not actually exist in the natural environment.

A large square pond sits against a building, and from a high waterfall in the background of the entrance front, water flows into the pond, becoming a stream in the pond. Further, we built bridges over the pond in several patterns, allowing people to cross over the pond, and set route ways.

We installed a roof on both sides of the pond, based on an image of leaves. The roofs are also tools to make people feel nature, such as reflection of the sun, the sound of rain and wind, and flow of rain.
