Sail over the Tracks - Varberg's new Railway Station
Examensarbete för masterexamen
Architecture and engineering, MSc
To increase the capacity of the railway between Oslo and Copenhagen a tunnel will be built under Varberg city. This means that a new train station needs to be built, in the city, and it is proposed that it will be placed at the mouth of the tunnel. As people today are traveling more and more, and an increasing percentage of these travels are done by train, this station is an important new building. “Sail Over the Tracks” are a design proposal for the new station. With a large roof it connects different ways of traveling, at the same time as it houses the sought functions of a modern, medium sized, train station. By using a light weight tension structure, less material is needed, and the design is thereby both economical and eco-friendly. The slender structure reaches out over the area, welcoming travellers from all directions, and becomes a suiting new entrance to this popular tourist destination and rapidly growing town.
