Before being exhibited at the Binnale, the design received an award from the Shitsurai Art International Competition held in Kobe, Japan. The overall design took inspiration from a devastating earthquake that hit Kobe and consequently changed the attitude of the current residents.

24 Studio created Crater Lake to inspire a welcoming feeling to the users in the hopes that interaction between other residents or visitors an their space will help to promote a healthier environment after the natural disaster.

The topographical surface allows people to traverse through the entire fabricated landscape and is manipulated to face certain areas of traffic to draw them in. Standard wood and off-the-shelf hardware were used so that they could keep the cost down.
