Abstract
Architecture provides a vessel for people to once again appreciate their past, while simultaneously experiencing the present.

We all linger on our pasts while we live in the moment and think about the future.

Future is going to be our present, and later on will be caged in our past.

Architectural ideas and believes, when they become real, can help people to gather and pull out their good moments in past while they celebrate their present together; which will be an ideal foundation for their future.

Celebrations which will be create from marriage between old and new. An architecture which reminds people their past and causes them to appreciate their moment.

It becomes most interesting when the time scales overlap.

Those architectural ideals are successful which do not belong to a certain time, but on the other hand have a future perspective.

This project will celebrate the merging of past, present and future.
