An organic shape, double-curved form stands above the terrain following the topography of the place and giving a continuity to the whole organic surrounding place. The floating element that acts as cover is distinguished by its unique shape and the way it anchors to the ground in two simple support points.

The structure was designed by Schlaich Bergermann and Partner and starts from a simple principle of physics, the two points of support design, leaving the roof levitate giving free space for moving cars. The cover is made ​​of materials that protect the space from rain and direct sunlight, but at the same time creates an indirect light mood, good enough to not be necessary to use artificial lighting systems .
