Zürich Stadelhofen Railway Station - Architecture

Architecture

In the 1990s the train station was rebuilt by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. The station building from 1894 was preserved and the surroundings were completely redone in a fancy twist of modern art, thus forming a striking combination of the new and the old.

Both station building and platforms are inscribed on the Swiss Inventory of Cultural Property of National Significance.

Famous quotes containing the word architecture:

    Art is a jealous mistress, and if a man have a genius for painting, poetry, music, architecture or philosophy, he makes a bad husband and an ill provider, and should be wise in season and not fetter himself with duties which will embitter his days and spoil him for his proper work.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I don’t think of form as a kind of architecture. The architecture is the result of the forming. It is the kinesthetic and visual sense of position and wholeness that puts the thing into the realm of art.
    Roy Lichtenstein (b. 1923)

    No architecture is so haughty as that which is simple.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)
