The dynamic form of the building is an embodiment of its essence as an architectural object in a given context and its educational and entertaining function. The visitor observes the life of chocolate — from a natural environment of cocoa trees through different stages of production to the final point in the sweets store. Inner curvature and texture of the shell create spaces that allow viewers to feel chocolate making processes. The building is simultaneously starting point, composition center, accent, and symbol of the ongoing revitalization process of historical industrial surroundings.
