We descend deeper into the bowels of the earth for the progress and development of industries. Now we can heal the wounds and fill the earth with life again, to reverse the process inside Troll A. Saturate the soil, remaining in zero gravity between heaven and ground, pause and watch the earth blooming under your feet.
Gigantic funnels grow from the ground, collect rainwater and irrigate the soil. Rainwater inside the pillars reinforces the structure, tensile support system stabilises it. On the top of the structure there is a one store construction, or a plateau. Frame shaped platform offers a 360 degrees view of the whole area. Solar panels on the roof collect the energy and illuminate plateau at night. Lift shafts are located in the corner funnels. The use of the plateau change with the time, it could be hotel, scientific-research laboratory or just an observation point.
