Modern Trains and Splendid Stations
Stock #: KB10819
Author: Martin Burwash

List Price: $0.00
Karen's Price: $49.95

This books takes a look at new train stations are going up, mostly, but not exclusively, in Western Europe and Japan. This album showcases those stations in conjunction with a current exhibit at Chicago's Art Institute. The modern train station is here critiqued in accessible prose, not in architectural jargon, just as the buildings themselves purport to welcome travelers, not intimidate them. Across the varied designs, one discerns a commitment to light and structural lightness: Lisbon's Oriente Station features a vaulting train station that mimics the nave of a Gothic cathedral. Another common feature is the accommodation that stations make to high-speed trains, most avidly by builders in France, Germany, and Japan. Designers of the few new station projects in the U.S. also flex their blueprints for the day, if ever, when this country gets with the high-speed program. This book, makes a contemporary architectural trend visible and exciting. Soft cover. more»
