Item description for Railway Stations: From the Gare de L'est to Penn Station by Alessia Ferrarini...

Similar in format to the Electaarchitecture title, "Twenty Houses by Twenty Architects," this volume presents a series of case studies of different interpretations of one building type. The author's introduction provides an overview of the history of railway architecture, citing its most significant developments. Individual project documentation begins with the Gare de L'Est in Paris, the first major railway station of the nineteenth century. Grand Central Terminal in New York City, of 1903-13, is documented through archival material, including engineering drawings and period photographs, as well as contemporary photographs revealing the major restoration project of the 1990s. Several contemporary stations that have reinvigorated the building type include the Santa Justa station in Seville by Antonio Cruz and Antonio Oritz, the a station in Kyoto by Hiroshi Hara, the Lyon TGV Station by Santiago Calatrava, and the Arnhem Station by Dutch architects Ben von Berkel and Caroline Bos of UN Studio, one of the leading firms of today.

Focusing on the architecture and evolution of the railway station over 100 years of changing designs  Nov 8, 2005
Railway fans always receive plenty of train books to contemplate - this offers a difference, focusing on the architecture and evolution of the railway station over 100 years of changing designs. Sixteen stations in nine countries are examined with an eye to considering historical precedent, the evolution of railway architecture, and the influence of station design on rail operations. Gorgeous, oversized full-page color photos capture the stations in profile, add charts where appropriate, and provides an exceptional visual display. Perfect not just for rail buffs, but for fans of transportation architecture in general.
