A permanent structural frame and a series of support modules allows the construction of new fragments for different narrative seasons. The physical architecture is never seen, only touched, existing as intersecting haptic infrastructure designed to guide visitors through narratives and facilitate immersive experiences.

There are rumors that the building no longer has any staff, that it somehow runs itself, and that some guests have never returned from their visits, lost forever inside the building's multiple realities. A Private Investigator has been engaged by an anonymous client to investigate these claims.
