"a piece of landscape inside the city, totally covered with a membrane of roses, lights and honeysuckle shrouding and unifying them with a silhouette and a single common material."

"Like a real mountain, the membrane tries to attract the most important butterfly species, right on the southward migratory route on the American continent. And will provide a resting place for migrating birds and turn into an artificial alternative to the disappeared forests and wetlands."
