In a slow and subtile way the surface is flowing down the mountain with its aim to reach the lake. As a result the earth is shaped like sloping waves. In consequence the highway, wich is running parallel to the shore, could not be based on the surface. The pillars lead up to forty meters below ground level. They are protected by oval shaped shafts, which are also grounded on the rocky base beneath the floating layers of earth. When it comes to buildings or infrastructures like streets, the shape of the topography is sectioned. The subterranean water pervades threw the stone silhouettes of the sectioned landscape and freezes on the surface, because sun can’t reach the northside wall.
