Lösning [Solution] II
An emergency stop button is mounted on top of a pipe, placed in the middle of a glass pavilion. From loudspeakers the sound from outside the pavilion can be heard. Sound is transmitted live via a microphone directly outside the pavilion, through an amplifier and a timer switch. When the emergency stop button is pressed, the sound from outside the pavilion is turned off. After a couple of minutes the sound turns itself back on again, to be heard until the next time someone presses the emergency stop button.
