The village of Matsudai is located deep in the mountains of the Niigata-prefecture. Once every three years in the summertime, the Niigata Art Triennial is held in the region. During this festival, the building operates as the event's main stage. The building itself is supported on ‘legs’, these not only create a snow free zone beneath it in winter and a shaded plaza in summer, but they also form the physical structure, dividing up the different functional spaces on the inside.
