It is located in Sofia, adjacent to the Botanical gardens. The overall volume is an «echo» of Vitosha mountain. It consists of four walkable green roofs/flower gardens, an amphitheater square, and a dome in its center. The program is divided into four essential parts: science and education centres, museum, and public space with restaurant and shops.
The building itself will turn the place into a new location for socialization, recreation and education attractive for visitors of different age groups giving it a new life characterized by well preserved natural environment and great potential for future development.
