* Architecture: Express Rail Link West Kowloon Terminus by Aedas

Posted by the editors on Monday, 30 April 2012

Architecture: Express Rail Link West Kowloon Terminus by Aedas: “..a transit hub for a high speed railway which travels between hong kong and beijing..flowing ribbon pathways spread to the roof plane, morphing into a highly sculpted garden. atop the 25 to 45 meter tall volume, an observation platform along the south elevation directs views towards the skyline, victoria peak and encompassing landscape. the roofscape circulation will link to retail and nearby subway and public transit points. voids and apertures within the facade bring daylight as well as visual glimpses down to the sub-grade platforms..”  Extraordinary, inside and out..
