Bolzano railway station Various maintenance facilities and sites dedicated to freight transportation of Bolzano`s railway station will be closed down or relocated in the near future. These newly free areas, situated in close proximity to the historic Center, become available for new purposes. This project presents the establishment of a new railway station for Bolzano in the form of an intermodal mobility Center. The new station, maintaining the strategic character of the historic building, forms a bridge and extends over the platforms. Thus, it connects the historic center to the district Piani. It also facilitates the transfers between different means of transports, and at the same time promotes a more sustainable mobility. The railway station is thereby to be considered not only as a transportation facility, but also as a social place within the urban space. The modular structure enables a high flexibility in its use, and makes the building adaptable to future requirements. Furthermore, this project points out strategies to set aside the barrier effect of the railway lines and to reconnect the different parts of the town. It also establishes a basis for an urban recovery of the district Piani.
