The project focuses on designing an observatory on Gradec hill where Zagreb's history began. The observatory has an open-air theatre on the roof to enjoy performances or watch the city of Zagreb.

It aims to encourage people around the world to tour Zagreb and promote the tourism industry in Croatia, and will be a new building form and concept that is sustainable and ecologically valuable in terms of design. For this purpose, as an interesting design point, trees growing along the frame of the exterior of the building will be planted through the grafting system.

After a few years of tree growth, the concept of the project which is returning nature to our city will be completed when removing frames. From then on, visitors and citizens will be able to enjoy the living architecture which interacts with the environment and shows different looks every time and season.
