Box-frame-type reinforced concrete construction is used. The domed or Laternen-decke ceilings of the assembly hall and museum are constructed of steel. The interior steel frames of the roofs are preformed and placed on reinforced concrete walls. Local rocks are used for the exterior wall facing. Openings for top lights and ventilation are designed on the top of the domes as necessary.
