Hi-Speed Rail Maintenance in Wilmington, Delaware by The Galante Architecture Studio

July 30th, 2013 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: The Galante Architecture Studio

This design is in response to the growing need to repair and upgrade aging infrastructure that is vital to the United States.  America’s Hi-Speed Rail network, originally built during the 20th century, has become physically outdated and technologically obsolete.  Therefore, our approach is to not only bring these elements up to modern standards, but to look forward to the promise of future possibilities, and communicate this architecturally.

Building Entrance

  • Architects: The Galante Architecture Studio
  • Project: Hi-Speed Rail Maintenance
  • Location: Wilmington, Delaware
  • Size: 1,2000 ft long
  • Cost: $22.5m
  • Materials: Stainless Steel ▫ Glass ▫ Photovoltaic Panels

Proposed Building

Empirically gathered information from direct interaction with the rail facilities and users, supplemented with academic research, has informed our design process and inspired us to propose these facilities in order to meet the growing needs of the Hi-Speed Rail system.  This Hi-Speed Maintenance facility would equip the rail system to address the imminent service and repair needs required by the major Hi-Speed Rail line running between Boston and Washington DC, and provide a precedent for a comprehensive US rail system.
