Reggio Emilia Station by Santiago Calatrava

"This is the brand new rail­way sta­tion, and the only stop, on the high-speed line between Bologna and Milan." Reggio Emilia Station by Santiago Calatrava Reggio Emilia Station by Santiago Calatrava reggio1 700x285

This is the brand new rail­way sta­tion, and the only stop, on the high-speed line between Bologna and Milan.

The waves are a sequence of steel and glass mod­ules extend­ing for almost 500 meters in a 3D roll which cre­ates dif­fer­ent colon­naded façades: a rough sea at the front and a lighter one at the back. A glass roof over the plat­forms is sup­ported by steel and con­crete struts.

This train station, open since 1859, is part of the Milan-Bologna railway, being a great way of passage between this two important cities.

The original passenger building was replaced in the mid-1930s with a new one, designed by the architect Angiolo Mazzoni. A few years later, the 1930s building was destroyed by bombing during World War II. It was replaced by a new structure, designed by the architect Roberto Narducci.

Described by some as ‘organic madness’, Santiago Calatrava’s design for Reggio Emilia Station is yet another stunningly beautiful, highly engineered design of epic scope. It is as much a sculpture as a building. He uses sharply angled elements as the primary structure which are repeated along the rectilinear floor plan, at gradually varying heights and lengths to create an undulating wave like elevation and interior spaces.
