All materials of the teahouse are from nature and will return to nature.
The parts fit into two carrying cases so that the teahouse can be assembled in various locations. Hanako Miwa collaborated with two architects, Alex H. Lee and Nami Nishino.

Hanako Miwa proposes a new aesthetic called mirai sabi. Mirai refers to a
futuristic aesthetic for the twenty-first century.Sabi refers to the traditional

becoming part of nature. Mirai sabi aims at creating harmony with nature and
expressing a delicate and fragile beauty that resides in nature.
