In order to create a solution to the heavy traffic congestion in the Shenzhen Metropolitan Area the Chinese company BYD is initiating the new large-scale SkyRail system.
BYD has chosen DISSING WEITLING architecture to develop the system principles for 12 light rail stations including the conceptual design.
The station architecture meets the claim for a simple and elegant design being in harmony with the different locations and carefully considering the specific urban environment.
The design for the series of new light rail stations is characterized by the angular roofs with slender eaves, giving the impression of sword-like lightness and elegance.
The entire structure has a significant expression, making the stations stand out as iconic architecture in the Chinese context.
The ticketing area is located in 'a box' under the platform area. This layout is in line with the clarity of the design and adopted to lower the temperature in passengers areas. I
Besides handling large numbers of daily passengers the constructions are specifically designed to resist earthquakes and extreme weather conditions.
