A gateway to Naples, a well-organized transport interchange and a landmark announcing the approach to the city. Our concept is a bridge extending across the tracks, an urbanized public link shaped by a dynamic architectural language geared towards the articulation of movement.

The New High Speed Station Napoli Afragola emerges from the idea of an overhead concourse for accessing platforms, enlarged to such a degree that it becomes the main passenger hub, in itself.

This is a through-station that acts as the nucleus of a new, proposed business park linking the various surrounding towns. It also allows two strips of extended parkland to move openly through the site alongside the tracks, opening and connecting the station to the surrounding landscape and business park.

Our dynamic architectural language is pursued further on the interior of the building, where the trajectory of travelers determines the geometry of the space.
