Central Bus Station (ZOB) Pforzheim in Germany by METARAUM Architekten BDA

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Article source: METARAUM Architekten BDA

An Urban Landmark

Respectfully set aside from the train station, the new central bus station (Zentraler Busbahnhof or ZOB) is an addition to the historic station building of Pforzheim. It constitutes a concise urban landmark, giving new form to a formerly barren area east of the station building. The historic style of the latter is now supplemented by a contemporary design: The roof segments’ curved edges are derived from typical radii and loops of vehicle movements and road curves. But not only the design had to fulfil highest demands, also the materials of the ZOB were chosen with regard to stability, weather resistance and most of all formability. Thus a total of 6,500 m2 AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Outdoor were used for the exterior ceilings and an exterior wall – as a water- and mould-resistant, robust solution.

Saint-Denis Pleyel Emblematic Train Station in Paris, France by Kengo Kuma & Associates

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

Kengo Kuma & Associates won the first prize for the competition “Saint-Denis Pleyel Emblematic Train Station” in Saint-Denis, France.

The train station will be the first stone of a future global urban project in the site of Saint-Denis Pleyel. It will enable the site and the city to increase its metropolitan scale significantly. The project is designed as a unique opportunity to open up the district by connecting the two sides of the city over a huge railway network of the Parisian North station. The station becomes an extension of the public spaces on many levels. Multiple levels continue in spiral, so the station functions as a complex that brings in streets in vertical layer. Steel frames that evoke rail tracks are used in the curtain wall and many other parts of the structure, to emphasize the passage of time and history. This approach will make people be aware that the station is theirs and give them pleasant passing-by every day, connected with the network of the city.
