  • the engineering solutions for tube (curved escalator), glass facade and pedestal
  • the security concept
  • the concept of orientation and lighting design, lights and lamps
  • the secrets of the concert halls, their acoustics and the current program.

Finally, we enjoy the panoramic view from the outdoor plaza. We show and explain the city and its "gateway to the world", the harbor, from above.
