The last installation of the series is an artificial landscape composed of 50 light shrubs, located at Knesebechstrasse. The series of the three try to achieve the same effect of creating an atmosphere with them. Opposed to the ordinary decorations that represent the holidays through substance and symbols that are contemplated from the outside, the architects wanted to produce a space that can be entered and experienced.

The created environment surrounding the guests is fashioned only with light that change its mass and greatness relentlessly though the visitor’s progress and altering standpoint.
