Proportionate - is the word i would use to decribe this project. A quality that is one of the most difficult to achieve in architectural design as it requires a mature thinker.
By proportionate I mean all things positive:
The addition is as large as it needs to be, and adds to the location in so many ways: function, spatial quality, brand, circulation, usability, attraction.
Combined with an "ageless" design, instead of trendy looks, it makes a perfect home for a long lasting community development.
The technical solutions do not seem to be complicated, they are well measured ( proportionate) to the extension size.
Tricky part of such a project is filling such a large volume with functions. A matter that would require local government involvement to deal with the site as part of their development areas.
the graphic representation is self explanatory, clear-cut, just like the thought itself.
Dear Simon Viktória,
Thank you for your observation on my project,it is a privilege to me that you took your time and gave your opinion and the keywords that you used shows me that my project’s idea was translated properly
The existing structures are embodied as memory silhouettes, lifeless and obsolete. The design intervention that will revive the train station that was affected by the blast and already abandoned from the civil war is an insertion of an exterior element, that will form a bond with the existing creating a new dimension to it. Both existing and new are dependent on each other, where the new takes refined characteristics from the existing to enhance its structure, spatial quality and reactivate it to the public.
The station is islanded around the neighborhood and neglected, and most people have no interaction with it even though it was a landmark from the past. The aim of this project is to insert an odd yet interesting function to attract the audience to discover.
The project is a creative technological hub that aims to aid the youth in their technological skills and knowledge since we are in a digital era where we are connected either directly or indirectly to a technological aspect. Therefore this program helps the youth be more creative and use technology as part of their daily life either for a career or general knowledge
