an underground park is located in the park, under the pond, prohibiting cars to be driven in the park. natural light crosses the water to light up the parking, while at night artificial light from the parking lights up the water surface of the pond. a footbridge at water level crosses the pond, bringing visitors to the elevators core.

 

four legs made of white perforated concrete surround three elevators and an emergency staircase leading visitors to a cloud city. each elevator is a transparent capsule that provide views of the city through holes in the concrete structure. at night, elevators are illuminated displaying their progression in altitude.
