The main challenge posed by the site is the constantly shifting weather conditions. The project investigates ways of creating an architecture that contradicts the tradition of designing a hurricane proof building as a fixed structure on land. The building suspended from the bridge above the water, undergoes transformations in line with the dynamics of the weather. Experiences are provided by the openings, closings and shifting of the elements, which correspond as much to changing weather as activities. Importantly, rain and light plays a fundamental role, being architecturally harnessed to serve as signs for the kids to follow. Interaction with a building becomes almost a hide and seek game between kids and the weather.
