Calatrava, Mediopadana railway station, Reggio Emilia

Mediopadana railway station, designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, is a white steel and glass roof structure spanning the tracks of the high speed railway line. Let us take a look at this recently inaugurated architectural project through the lens of photographer Gianluca Giordano.

The railway station is 483 metres long and has an average width of 20 m. Its sinusoidal wave-likeshape is created with a succession of geometrically different closed portals.
There are two levels inside the station. The ground floor is in direct contact with the entrance and the street and houses the ticket office and other station services. Escalators go up to the upper level, where the train tracks and platforms are located, and the dynamism and sense of motion the structure conveys to travellers on this level is clear in Gianluca Giordano?s photographs, as is the diffuse light pervading the entire space.
