The term “Nova”, or “future", is full of infinite possibilities. The architect hopes to convey a spirit of actively pursuing the future. The minimalist geometric form emphasizes the artificial properties of the project. Using fine steel cables form a translucent "curtain" that defines the "inner and outer" space. At the same time, the original pine forests has been preserved. The lower part of tower melts into the pine forest, engaging in a dialogue with nature. The upper section is akin to a floating object above the forest.  Human and nature reaches a harmonious symbiosis in this space.
