The concept of project has been inspired from the covered passage which was a covered path in the traditional Iranian Architecture.
In design process with consideration of the nature of corridors of the form we decided to use the form of a horse saddle from two sides which brought us the following achievements
1-disturbing the simply of the form
2-elimiates the sight to the boundaries in the time of iterance which cause the most depth for the project
3-bring the sense of limitless in the viewer
The form of foundation were designed in a harmony mode with the form of whole project in two side (50 cm from the earth)for protecting the project from the environment forces and increasing the total height of project also as a proper place for lighting .
The structure has been designed with consideration of uploading and the influence of environmental factors such as prevailing wind which designed in 7 main arcuate elements and 6 subsidiary horizontal ones also, 250 meter tensional cable.
The bottles has been sat on the flexible metal mesh for covering the 6 arcs of project in the place of workshop .we flattened the form of these arcs on the earth then we gained the real length of those after that we attached the bottles on them. Finally, these metal meshes with bottles sat on the structure.
After visiting the site we decided to use the potentials of the site like: trees and benches .so, we locating the foundation in way that the project covers 2 trees and 1 bench which bring a very nice harmony for it .also prepare a very good place for tired passengers.
We use water color for filling the bottles in the following way: green for 2 entrance arcs which causes attraction that evokes the passengers to enter our project and blue for 4 middle arcs which bring a cool eye catching place both in the light of sun also under the lighting at night.
