An important role is played by the stone, in various kinds of aggregate: dematerialised as a shiny formwork surface, as Nagelfluh-like (conglomerate) fossilised washed concrete, as an ornamental flow pattern in the area of the inverted formwork, or as the crystalline silicate of the entrance glazing.
The huge «verleimte Träger» was bended in several industrial halles, because the time-factor was immense. In this infrastructural project (the changing of a swiss-wide timetable system depended on the opening of the wave). The wooden look of the inside of the wave, reflects the history of the railway as a invention of the 19th century. It is also a topological shift of elementary obsevations like the river-loop of the Aare and the bended appearance of the track-bed.
