Sustainability, as a concept, is a renewable phenomenon that does not consume itself and its environment while producing, and protects the right to life and environment of future generations. For sustainability, criteria for soil, energy, materials, water conservation, waste reduction and human health and comfort should be met. In sustainability, the correct and efficient use of existing resources is a priority. In this period when resources are gradually disappearing, ecological structures are very important. In order to achieve a sustainable life, it is necessary to choose and develop building materials in line with systems that develop due to technology by minimizing the increase in greenhouse gases and accordingly preventing negative changes such as global warming.

Material selection, resource use, shell arrangements and form of Revive are handled in line with these requirements of sustainability. Organic hemp and double-layer PTFE glass fiber are used, which enables the use of sunlight in the building and does not emit harmful gases when in contact with heat, and even allows the absorption of these gases. The CLT product, which forms the main skeleton, was preferred over the commonly used materials due to low carbon emissions, ease of recycling, and ecological production process. Considering the decreasing water resources and the amount of rain, the water used in the building is completely supplied from nature. This approach to water aims to emphasize that the place of sustainability in the human mind is as important as its place in buildings. While the elliptical pavilion facilitates access and perceptibility from all environmental aspects with its transparent and mobile outer cover, the nature effect in its center arouses curiosity.

The water pool in the center of the shell and the pipes connected to it provide the circulation of water between the plants and the tank. The placement of the exhibition elements defines the circulation line and makes it difficult to reach the focal point, thus emphasizing the importance of the source. The plants on the modules contribute to the increase of biodiversity in the area where the building is located. The modules also create different usage scenarios (seating units, amphitheater, storage, etc.). Considering the need for the pavilion to be located in different locations, materials, dimensions and combination techniques that provide ease of installation and transportation were utilized.
