Aston stated that, “The proposed design, a capsule with the purpose of predict and reminding humanity will be spread across the continents. Its spherical shape aids in harvesting sunlight efficiently by the photo-bioreactor panels as its facade, Reducing wind load and centralizing its load to the core and directing it towards its host with its uniform steel support systems. When in great numbers, it will form a park, garden or even a bridge that connects two borders such as the gap between towers or to cross a river as it may be treated as a casual leisure spot for people all across the globe as well.”
