Quotes from the history of science are interspersed with paintworks and sculptures such as Newton's apple, the wings of Icarus, and the five Platonic solids representing the classical elements – a dodecahedron, symbolising the aether and containing the "black hole of the universe", is suspended from the central ceiling. As one of the first "cave stations" where the walls follow the contours of the underlying bedrock, Tekniska högskolan (along with nearby Stadion) metro station was awarded the 1973 Kasper Salin Prize.
