Rethinking multimodal transportation

BY TRAM ON WAY ENSAN
@ VOL 8 ON JUL 04, 2014

Nicola Barbisan, Victor Martial and Natalya Yankovska present us their vision of a multimodal station for the city of Nantes.
Train stations are no longer stand-alone terminus, but need to be fully connected with the city, and have to combine various existings transportation networks to achieve a high level of performance in order to play an active role in the urban life.
The transformation of Nantes train station involves rethinking the act of travel in all its spatial and temporal dimensions. Thus the goal was to design a performant yet comfortable transportation hub, a new architectural landmark aiming to make commute and travel more efficient and simple, for both pedestrians, cyclists or commuters. {in French}
