T+L Design Awards 2010

Best Terminal
Liège-Guillemins High-Speed Railway Station

Liège, Belgium. Designed by Santiago Calatrava

More than any other working architect, Santiago Calatrava has made the sheer drama of geometry and engineering his trademark, and his new high-speed rail station is no exception. Spanning 518 feet under a sloping, bubble-like canopy, the structure glows from within, and appears to have emerged from the surrounding urban fabric like an emblem of the future that was always meant to be here. sncb.be.

From the Jury:

“If a train station can be a destination, Liège-Guillemins would be one you’d want to see.” —Valerie Steele
