Central Station in Salzburg, Austria by kadawittfeldarchitektur

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Article source: kadawittfeldarchitektur

Salzburg Central Station is one of two large-scale projects bringing the capital expenditure program of the ÖBB to completion. In the year 1999, the design of kadawittfeldarchitektur (Aachen/Graz) won a two-phase surveyed competition between 12 teams of architects. In order to integrate the station into the city, the task was not only to arrange the railway tracks anew. In particular, there was the task of integrating the historic train station from 1860 with its “authentic” appearance into a master plan that newly connects the boroughs on both sides of the tracks through several bridges and passageways.

The urban layout has followed these differences, regular and rectangular on the north, concentrated and radio centric on the south.

The Station Area of Malmi in Helsinki, Finland by Prokofyev-Archigroup

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

Article source: Prokofyev-Archigroup

At the crossing of the transport routes in the cities, where there is constant presence of people and their movement, there is formed certain public space, which has its own especial atmosphere. Usually, stations in any country of the world, in any city, both bus and railway, arouse people’s typical formed stereotypes. And what if they are all identical? Same dowel, same rails and typical bulkheads over them. That is why each station should have its own unique appearance, its own atmosphere.
