Santiago Calatrava
location Zurich
function train station
contributed by HelleBeelden

Stadelhofen Train Station, built in the early 1980s, is a major transportation junction for the Zurich area. The original design consisted of a 300 metres long terminal building, running along a curved railway line, which itself runs along a hillside in the town's centre. In 1990, Santiago Calatrava received the assignment to add a new third track to the existing train station. In order to accomplish this, his design envolved excavating part of the hillside to add the track, only to restore the hillside in part on top of the new structure. This way the new track has an open, naturally lit platform, while above ground space was created for walkways.

Must see.

This incredible train station by legendary architect Santiago Calatrava is extremely expressive of structural forces- both straining to support the weight of the hill it's embedded in, and stretching it out to act as a shelter for the station. In perfect equilibrium, the structure is partially supported by a curve in plan, and by slender tension rods which seem to hold the building down rather than hold it up.

Olá João. É um bom projecto do Calatrava, pelos motivos que falas, mas falta-lhe um pouco o toque do mesmo Calatrava que está noutros projectos tão vincados como Milwaukee, Estação Oriente, Aeroporto Lyon e tantos outros...este projecto parece que podia ter sido feito por outro arquitecto qualquer que não o Calatrava.
(now in english)
It's a good project but don't seem to be made by Calatrava, it could be made for anyone else, because we don't feel the touch of Calatrava, that we feel In Orient Station, Lyon Airport, or Milwaukee

Hi Tansu, MIMOA does not publish any drawings. You could send a request to the office of the architect... Click on the architect's name, and you'll find the website address. Good luck.

Do you have architectural drawings of Stadelhofen Station?
One of the best projects from Calatrava! It has a good relationship with the urban environment and a sense of scale.

How to get there? Swiss Railways operates regional train services through Stadelhofen. However, the station is only for regional lines, and is not the main station in Zurich. You can reach it from the main station in about 10-15 minutes by tram (No. 11, going south).
