The box-like thematic spaces should guide the movement around the inner side of a shell facade and show abstractly with pictures, sound and smell each individual typical Slovene region; mountain, pannonial, Mediterranean and sub-terrain. As the lifted pavilion is a dynamic and moving object, so was the main guidance of the garden under it, to make it as dynamic as possible. An alteration to the garden was necessary to achieve within the small area and in the very short time of five months. The project of the garden is attractive and visually recognizable through the whole seasonal cycle, from July to the end of October. Noticeable changes of the garden in the short period of work as the concept of the building, where the understanding of individual pieces of information change with time. On the sandy flat the so-called compost crests are arranged, from which different types of pumpkins grow. The course of the vegetation cycle is very fast, from intensive growth (as much as 1.5 m per month), blooming, to the forming of fruit. At the end the plants are removed and only the colour compost crests and colourful fruit remains. By this means we get an unpredictable composition of different pumpkins and line elements. In fact the origin and the formation of this garden is work in progress, since it changes in a more or less natural way, without the pre-known result. Unfortunately, the project was cancelled at the last moment due to high cost.
