Presentation time: 12:15
A project that has raised discussions, opinions and political demonstrations: the new main railway station in Stuttgart, Germany. The building is designed by Ingenhoven Architects and forms the centerpiece of the Stuttgart 21 transport and urban design project. The new light-flooded underground through station is to replace the existing Stuttgart terminus station. The speaker will elaborate on the technical and operational requirements, and how the design team is facing and handling the European and internal regulations inherent to this centennial project.
