contributed by Roderick

Rotterdam is to get a new Central Station. This is to be re-anchored in the city centre and integrated in the European network of transport hubs created by the arrival of the high speed rail system (HSL). So a Grand Station of international standing is required. In the design, the city is drawn to the new station by compacting the small-scale urban fabric round about so that railway zone and city become a single entity. The finer texture with its new sight lines and the mix of living and working will greatly improve the social climate of this zone. On entering the tall light-filled station concourse, travellers have an overall view and see at once where the trains are. The sunken and widened passage beneath the tracks is a natural continuation of the concourse. Platforms have a largely transparent roof some 250 metres long spanning the entire track zone. Marking the onset of Rotterdam's 'cultural axis', the new Grand Central Station points the way to the city's heart.
