This proposal was made for the world expo in Shanghai, China. Kinos is a tarred wooden box that has been cut underneath into a snow-cave providing shelter from the scorching sun or rain for the queue of expo-visitors. This textile surface of the "snow cave" could also be used as a projection screen for visual themes during the expo.
