Outside the buildings, a large yellow square held in the same tiles as the façades functions as the unifying place for the visitors. The Auditorium’s main entrance and foyer connect the square on the one side of the building with the lake on the other via its large windows from floor to ceiling. Inside the foyer, the underside of the auditorium hangs visibly in the room and extends through-out the three floors. Its shape is reminiscent of the moraine formations in the park, while it also functions as the canvas for the enormous painting by the Danish artist Per Kirkeby.
