This is a mechanized warehouse had to be built for herbs and herbal throat drops. The structure appears to rest on ribs which can be seen protruding below the bottom-most of these layers. They are attached to the slab which has been cast directly on the rocky ground forming the foundation of the warehouse. Because of the open structure which is formed, the yellow colour of the thermal insulation can be detected between the panels. The only exception to this is on the side exposed to the weather, where a silver foil offers additional protection against moisture. The architects have given various reasons for the shape of the shell. All of them have to do with the stacking of materials: planks piled to dry, or panels of cement, or even the shelves of the new hall. In images like these, which they called upon when creating the design, the function and construction of the warehouse are rendered congruent in a complex fashion. (text from website Ricola)
