Extract from the Finnish Architecture 2010–2011 jury report by Juhani Pallasmaa:

“This project is an encouraging example of temporary construction for changing social demands.The strong colour schemes create the relaxed ambience of a spontaneous architectural game, successfully eliminating the usual negative impacts of repetition, excessive rationality and temporariness.”
