After the installation in Helsinki, the wooden pavilion was transported and reused as a train station pavilion in Uusikylä, Lahti. The structure provides shelter for passengers and can be used as an outdoor exhibition space. The pavilion is also a starting point for hiking trails along Salpausselkä ridge, formed by the last ice age 12 000 years ago. The pavilion is located on a former beach and delta of the ice age which is shown in landscaping of the pavilion surroundings. The wooden structure was manufactured as three prefabricated elements crafted by skillful local carpenters.
