The building housing the Lala station is covered in travertine slabs, and similar to the external layouts, was designed by Studio Protec, (Uberto Siola, Luigi Milano, Luigi Pisciotti, Dante Rabitti, Federica Visconti).  Located alongside Largo Lala, the building perfectly compliments the circular perimeter of the piazza.

The interior of the station houses the works of five modern photographers.  The Brazilian Salvino Campos is present with Untitled 12/La Habana 2002, centred on an immobile antique car, and Caponeria, Salvador, Bahia 2004, which captures the dynamism of a young male body engaged in an old South American dance.

The human form is praised in Femme Terre, 1998-1999, by the Senegalese Ousmane Ndiaye Dago:  his female nudes, covered with a clay-like layer that makes them resemble living sculptures, recall the harmonious composedness of classical figures through the movements of their shoulders and their raised arms.

At the end of the narrow corridor leading to the platform for Mostra, we see an work  which exerts a somewhat disturbing influence on the viewer: a screaming woman wearing a veil portrayed by the Neapolitan photographer Monica Biancardi.

In both the images produced by Luca Campigotto and Vicenzo Castella, the frames are dominated by industrial landscapes frozen in time, focusing our gaze on the current urban situation in Naples.
The only artist represented at Lala through an artistic installation in Nanni Balestrini, with his Allucco, an explosion of splinters, mirrors, and fragments of words.
