Project description

This public facility expresses the world of childhood. The idea is to create an event that leads the public space using childish imagination. A giraffe is a leader and quietly grazes the tree layer within reach while a polar bear is trying to climb to the upper terrace from the south and a ladybug procession through the garden.
