A mound acts as an approach to the structure linking it with a bridge. A central circular stairway connects all the levels. The lowest level can serve as a shelter to the coyotes- an indigenous species to the place Coyote Buttes. A central glass floor allows one to visually connect with the surroundings. The circular punctures in the volume with a viewing deck along the staircase helps the user experience the landscape in totality [contemplation space].
