The development around the Station area in Biel is among the most impressive examples of "Neues Bauen"-town planning in Switzerland. The architects Graber- Pulver replaced the modest 1923 terminus building in the south-eastern corner of the Square, which was not in the "Neues Bauen" tradition, with a new commercial block. The architects recognized the high quality of the historically important thirties architecture in the Square, and drew their inspiration from it. The complex positioning of the individual land parcels, which are directly adjacent to the raised Station platform area on the south side and to a two-storey car-park at the back, required complex access facilities with an passage, Steps and a number of entrances to the building. It Stands on a simple, rectangular ground plan and thrives on games with sophisticated handling of the volumes. (Text by Not Caviezel published in "werk, bauen und wohnen" 90/2003)
