Conservation Award runner-up - Dresden Station

  • Comment

Dresden Station Redevelopment, Dresden, Germany
Architect: Foster + Partners
Client: Deutsche Bahn Station and Service
Contract value: €148M
Photography by: Nigel Young

The redevelopment of Dresden Station provides an extensively repaired and improved terminus that replaces the existing fragile shell with a spectacular translucent glass fibre roof. The roof reiterates the finesse of the original arches but provides adequate shelter and allows for future links to a high-speed train network. As part of a master plan for the surrounding area, the new Dresden Station provides a clear circulation strategy to allow for clear way-finding, as well as restoring significant amounts of light to the station.
