HUB OF DESIGN
Airports, train stations, subway terminals, and transportation hubs of all kinds
are a part of our built history and can represent many things—excitement,
adventure, frustration. A portal to another place, the design of such buildings is
a canvas for designers to tell the story of a region, to inspire and amuse travelers,
and make the time spent in such places as peaceful and efficient as possible.
In the March/April issue, i+D will take a deeper look at the changing face of
these unavoidable junctions and the design work being done to improve
the passenger experience.
As riders ascend
the escalators at the
station, an impressive
ceiling with the historic
map of Delft unfolds.
