U-R-A CHIEF ARCHITECT EVGENI LEONOV COMMENTS ON WINNING THE NOVOPEREDELKINO SUBWAY STATION DESIGN CONTEST.

We are sincerely glad to know that 300,000+ Moscovites have took part in the voting and viewed our work as the best! And what more, we are excited to know that this opinion of citizens was shared by the Contest judges! It is common people that use subway stations, and thus Moscow Mayor Sobyanin’s idea to involve such common people into the decision making process seems really trendy and reasonable.

Construction started in 1963 with the first apartments finished in 1968. In the 1970’s the area was connected to the center of Amsterdam by a new metro line raised 11m above the ground on a brutalist concrete structure.

King Abdullah Financial District Metro Station in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia by Zaha Hadid Architects

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

The King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) Metro Station will serve as a key interchange on the new Riyadh Metro network for Line 1, as well as the terminus of Line 4 (for passengers to the airport) and Line 6. The local monorail can also be accessed from the station via a skybridge. With six platforms over four public floors and two levels of underground car parking, the KAFD Metro Station will be integrated within the urban context of the financial district, responding to the functional requirements of a multimodal transport centre and the district’s future vision. The project extends beyond the simple station typology to emphasize the building’s importance as a dynamic, multi-functional public space; not only an intermediate place perceived through quick transitions, but also a dramatic public space for the city.

Rennes metro station in Rennes, France by Atelier Zündel & Cristea

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

At the start, we wanted to define for ourselves what a metro station is: it acts as a marker along the metro line’s trajectory, an easily accessible public space with simple and fluid pathways, clear and intelligible signage. Our project, addressing the metro station stop “Gare (Train station) – Line B” in Rennes, attempts to render concrete and visible this new conception of the metro’s urban significance by concentrating on intelligibility and on the quality of the station’s space.
