This teahouse is made up of scavenged styrofoam. One aspect of tea is a constant re-invention of the practice in contemporary forms. The use of the styrofoam that comes from our reality makes tea ceremony into our contemporary. Another aspect of using such material reflects the aspect of Zen that prevents us from the waste, which enables harmony between human and the natural world.
