After the research on meditation, meditation is determined as a process of developing, and as the transformation of the meditators’ spirits. At this point, the cocoons, in which the evolution is most clearly observed in nature, is examined. When a caterpillar enters his cocoon to evolve, the cocoon provides a safe place to the caterpillar in order to protect and abstract it from the outside while leaving it alone. Likewise, when a person enters a meditation room to meditate/to evolve, the meditation cabin allows him/her to be isolated and protected from outside, and to be alone. As a result, this design is concluded by the solid similarities between the meditation cabin and “the Cocoon”.
