Although the structure of the object is concise, it has several conceptual layers that include symbolic, landscape, functional and architectonic aspects. The object has a relevant location because it is visible from all passings to Jurmala. The object is a significant accent in the city's overall landscape, and consequently its shape and siluet is especially important. For that reason, we looked for symbols typical for Jurmala and found amber-chrystalised resin of pine.
