The importance of an individual doing his/her part for the environment is a message that is the highlighted through the design. The “leaves” are evolved to the flower, Hydrangea, which is a significant representation of City of Kobe. Leaves represent us while the tree is a representation of the environment. The incoming floating leaves from all directions are needed for the tree to be complete. It indirectly conveys the analogy of us being a vital part of the whole environment and the significance of one’s action that may affect the whole system.
