MAD Architects has designed the Jiaxing Train Station in Jiaxing, China.
Led by Ma Yansong, MAD Architects developed the Jiaxing Train Station. The proposal included a 1:1 rebuilding of the historic station building derived from archival studies while creating a new train station underground.
"The new station will be bright, efficient, and human-scaled, with a flood of natural light to create a friendly, comfortable environment," said MAD Architects.
The main transportation and commercial functions are to be located on the basement level, allowing the ground-floor space to be given back to nature.
"A shared space between Jiaxing's citizens and travellers, this new green urban centre will transform into a train station in the forest,” added MAD Architects.
