I would like my exhibition center to feel as alive as possible. To achieve this, I want to focus on three key elements.

First, I would like to maximize the use of natural building materials. The first two pictures demonstrate this very well, with the Ulaman Eco Retreat using bamboo and the Bunjil Place Library using wood.

Second, I want to incorporate as much green space as possible (outside & inside, horizontal & vertical surfaces). The last two pictures are great examples of this.

Third, I like the idea of my exhibition center having very fluid, curved, somewhat irregular lines. I feel this mimics nature better than straight lines and 90 degree corners. However, I think I might need to reach some sort of happy medium with this since too many curves might make modeling quite challenging. All four pictures are perfect examples of this, with their building profiles flowing very naturally.
