On sunny days, when the sun shines and a certain amount of wind blows, light is led into the space from the pipes in the ceiling, creating a phenomenon of light that looks like drops falling onto the surface of water. The light constantly moves with the wind and falls to reveal new sights. This architectural space is a remarkable manifestation of the seasonal, daily and time-of-day changes caused by the atmosphere, and the sights that can be experienced differ depending on the time of day when you visit. It is an accidental creation of nature, which we humans cannot manipulate.
