The Xiang’on Railway Terminal is conceived as a large scale mobility hub within the masterplan for the city of Xiang’on, China.The Railway Terminal is to serve as the infrastructural centrepiece required by the future expansion of the city
The proposed new terminal is defined by a highly distinctive piece of undulating urban topography sheltered from the extremes of weather by a striking canopy. Extensive facilities for high-speed trains, regional trains and local trams housed on different levels underground. The various platforms, ticketing and waiting areas, retail areas and restaurants are focused around the central „Valley of Light“, an unmistakeable urban intervention celebrating different patterns of movement in and through the city.
The masterplanning project was a collaboration with Pesch & Partner (PP AS) and Rainer Schmidt Landschaftsarchitekten. haascookzemmrich STUDIO2050 works were performed through our Shanghai Office, under the leadership of Hanxiao Liu.
