In order to understand any project takes a bit of self introspection. Since architecture is a somewhat subjective art, you can't expect someone to understand it if that person can't also internalize it. One of the first thinks I look to when I observe a project is the title. A title can say a lot to you about a project since it's a clue as to what was foremost in the mind of the designer upon reflection of that architectural process. This project is called "Silent Garden". I can't say with certainty what that meant to this group of designers, but I've always felt that architecture requires a certain amount of tranquility and peace in order to bloom. I'm the type of person that needs a peaceful setting in order to really focus my skills and abilities. If I have too many distractions my work will inevitably suffer. I feel that this project embodies a bit of that frustration. Even though a garden is something that we tend to enjoy visually, I am reminded of times that I have been in a garden and heard traffic and construction noises in the distance, which really detracted from an otherwise pleasant experience. Architecture is similar. We think of it as a visual exercise, but it is so easily polluted by noise, something you may not even realize since noise seems so ubiquitous. You may find that a peaceful or perhaps even a silent environment may be the key to unlock some creative energy.
