The ancient history of vinegar and simple containers, such as jars, inspired the original design. The texture of the building facade is like a geological fault section, making the building grow out of the ground, while the grooves on the vertical surface are the marks of the buried ancient containers printed on the cube. Sunlight enters the room through the dome, creating the shadow of vinegar altar. With the change of time, the shadow of the vinegar altar changes into different shapes.
