OPEN DIALOGUE: The dialogue between the station and the city happens throughout the design of an urban space that speaks with the design of the visible skin that folds and envelops the existing building structure.
THE SKIN: The skin is meant to be light and immaterial, it rejects the density of the aluminum material of witch it is composed.
The second skin is the dress that hides the existing building and that creates innovation in the form itself.
THE LIGHT: The inside spaces are a continues dialog with the passenger and the city. Natural light and artificial light create a sensible dialog.
Every internal energy push, is driven out by the second skin of the building and defined by gravity and natural light.
LIKE A BLACKBOARD: Inside, the use of materials and artificial light describe the paths and mark moments of break.
Each space is unique and like a blackboard welcomes the daily life of users.
THROUGH THE TIME: The user reads buildings like a passage towards the function of the station where can find time and place in order to remember space within itself, through the time.
