MIA STATION

MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

THIS NEW RAPID TRANSIT FACILITY, INSERTED WITHIN A TRANSPORTATION INTER-MODAL CENTER, EXPANDS CURRENT HEAVY RAIL AND BUS SYSTEMS. THE OVERRIDING QUESTION POSED BY THIS PROJECT WAS HOW TO EFFECTIVELY EXPAND UPON A MATURE RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM.  OUR ANSWER LIES IN PROVIDING A CRITICAL DESIGN APPROACH THAT CONTINUES THE COMMON ELEMENTS OF THE SYSTEM, YET UTILIZES CURRENT TECHNOLOGY IN DEFINING A NEW EXPRESSION.

 

THIS NEW EXPRESSION, AS PRINCIPALLY CHARACTERIZED BY THE PLATFORM CANOPY, WAS CONSTRUCTED THROUGH THE DEVELPMENT OF A “DIGITAL DEFINITION” MODEL THAT , IN TURN, WAS USED IN ITS FINAL FABRICATION. THE NEW EXPRESSION NOT ONLY HERALDS THE IMPORTANCE OF MASS TRANSIT, BUT ALSO PROVIDES A MEMORABLE AND ENHANCED EXPERIENCE FOR RIDERS, AND WILL ULTIMATELY INCREASE RIDERSHIP. 

THIS PROJECT HAS RECEIVED NUMEROUS ACCOLADES AND RECOGNITION FROM NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL PANELS FOR EXCELLENCE IN DESIGN.
