The book show how the architecture of railway stations is changing in the 21st century through selected projects of the Italian State Railways designed by Zaha Hadid, Foster, Studio ABDR and others. The volume brings out the important architectural solutions adopted to cope with advanced technological and structural problems. Society today is living through a sort of second Renaissance and stations have become symbols of culture and reception.
This new urban landscape has fostered the choice of high-speed projects and the reorganization of the old stations by the Italian Railways. This volume deals with the projects for stations for high speed trains and five redevelopments recently carried out by the railways. Each station is illustrated with large images and texts showing the specific functions aimed at objectives of functionality and sustainability
