Exhibition design Brno Station on tour
Benthem Crouwel Architects and West 8’s design for the new main train station in Brno, Czech Republic, is now on display at Brno’s Town Hall.
In 2021, an international architectural-urban-transport competition was announced for the new main train station, commissioned by the city of Brno and the Railway Administration. The aim was to bring a modern, functional, and aesthetically appealing transport hub to the city.
The winning design of the new main train station was proposed by Benthem Crouwel Architects and West 8. This year, a comprehensive architectural study was completed, presenting a design that reflects the needs of a modern and sustainable urban environment.
GLIMPSE INTO THE FUTURE
The results of this study is now presented in a travelling exhibition: Brno Station, opening today in the New Town Hall in Brno. The exhibition features not only graphic panels depicting details of the new architectural concept of the station, but also displays a large model of the station along with its wider surroundings, providing visitors with a comprehensive understanding of the upcoming transformation of the area.
Additionally, some of Benthem Crouwel Architects’ most famous stations like Amsterdam-, Rotterdam -, Utrecht-, Den Haag Station and Schiphol Airport are featured in this exhibition, showcasing our vast experience with designing complex transit hubs.
This is a unique opportunity to glimpse into the future of the Brno transportation hub and its integration into the broader urban context.
