contributed by NGHM

The city of Strasbourg developed a new tram-line service to combat increasing congestion and pollution in the city centre. It encourages people to leave their cars outside the city in specially designed car parks, and then take a tram to the more inner parts of the city. Hadid was invited to design the tram-station and a car park for 700 cars at the northern end of line B which runs north to south. Her idea is to create "an energetic and attractive space that is clearly defined in terms of function and circulation, which is made possible through 3D graphics of light and openings. The notion of the cars as being ephemeral and constantly changing elements on site is manifest as a 'magnetic field' of white lines on the black tarmac. In contrast with the lines on the ground, an area of darker concrete, almost an imaginary 'shadow', cuts gently through the car park, linking the field of the station to the one of the car park."
