Literal folding was used to integrate, and where necessary, to separate programmatic elements. This created a fluid, but nevertheless distinct movement throughout the building. The simplicity of the literal fold helped to ensure readability. The open surface allowed for a strong sense of the Concert Hall's interconnectedness with its surroundings - the parliament building, the square, the park-strip and the river.
The foyer, which stretches through the building, has its point of gravity on the side of the building that contains the 'glacier-wall'. This wall allows direct access to the main auditorium. Indeed, of all the folds, the one that produces the glacier-wall is the most significant: it is at this point that mass becomes surface and the shoebox shape of the auditorium is 'unboxed'. A sloping landscape with its potential for inhabitation has taken its place.
