Zaha Hadid speeds ahead with Naples station proposal
Zaha Hadid Architects has unveiled the first images of its proposals for the new Napoli-Afragola High Speed Train Station.
The project's brief - drawn up by the city council - demands that the new station should provide a 'well-organised interchange, a focal point for a new business park and a new gateway to the city of Naples'.
Hadid's designs aim to enlarge the overhead concourse - already necessary for access to the platforms - to such an extent that it can become 'the main passenger station itself '.
The enlarged concourse will allow the areas beside the tracks to be landscaped into communal parkland.
