End of Degree Project
One year development, project design and analysis guided by Vicente Patón, Juan Martín Baranda and Enrique Martinez.
A systematic architecture made of steel and glass (railroad language), in contrast with the nature and the Royal Gardens.
The project, a Transport Hub in Aranjuez (Madrid), is the result of an industrial design in the cultural context of the royal gardens.
The main idea is to improve the landscape, damaged by the railroad over the years, breaking this "wall" of the city and recovering the royal gardens as they were, removing the abandoned buildings, to have only a dialogue between the Royal Palace and the new station.
Talking about the railroad, using it's patterns, materials and images. The project will fly over the tracks with an industrial and neutral language as an habited marquee, a modular architecture that generates spaces by it's own repetition.
The whole station is hanging perforated by the structure, as skylights from the top to the platforms, wrapped in a skin of glass easy to read. The interior space reflects these intentions with double height from which you can observe the trains or structure above.
