In exploring the relationship between enclosure and geometries, the structure redefines previous memories of flowers through a sensory garden space. Experiences within the specific circulation path transition from “normal” to considerably uncommon. Visitors can encounter: touching flowers; smelling good flowers to unpleasant ones; tasting sweet and sour flowers to bitter and spicy; hearing the interactions flowers have with animals; planting flowers; and utilizing those to create a visual art piece at the end of the structure. The audience members are completely immersed and become more open to viewing flowers differently, similar to how the structure ultimately becomes more open as well.
