The Rain Gardens


The Rain Gardens; tranquillity, wellbeing, trade of knowledge and local produce. A structure with the likeness of a spider from above; a parasitic-like building from afar, latching itself to its surroundings. With the anatomy of frogs, represented in the spaces, the heart as something alive that grows and sings, and becomes part of the existing building itself. Inspired by biomimicry the site uses sound therapy with rainwater “to grow closer to nature” and a better quality of life.
