The design is influenced by urban planning principles . All design decisions are subject to urban imaginary spatial sequences , which includes an “entrance plaza” as an important part of the overall concept . Different “plazas” in its various forms ( open , roofed) are to be mentioned here as well as the arrangement of the various functions . The design concept is not only to hand the solution of functional relationships but reflects the impact of the surrounding space.
