In its form and location the new bus station reacts to the neighbouring Art Industry Museumthe train station building opposite, and forms the border of a large square formed by the three buildings.
Suspended on pylons, the extremely light construction of tensioned cables length-wise is complemented by crosswise thin timber beams, which serve to support the glass. The light atmosphere produced by the glass roof combined with the wooden structure creates the open, inviting, welcoming character of the place.
