The idea behind the urban proposal was that the pavilion would divide the square in two parts in such a way that you would still have the feeling of being on one big square. Because of the market activities which occupy the entire square twice a week, the terraces of the pavilion needed to be placed above the ground floor. Originally the terraces could only be reached by going through the pavilion. René van Zuuk decided to make the terraces accessible from the outside of the building as well so you can walk from the square up onto the sloped roof to the terraces, letting the roof become a public area. The entrances from the roof to the building are made by cuts in the sloped surface, giving every floor its own terrace. The rest of the roof acts as a big stage which allows artists to give performances in front of the building.On the south side the pavilion reaches its highest point. This part of the building cantilevers over the main entrance of the parking garage.
