Design a High Profile Metro Station

Students take part in an exercise that focuses on the design of a high-profile Metro station.

The local railway authority Metropolitana di Napoli (MDN) is implementing an expansion programme – part of which involves the extension of the principal east-west metro line.

MDN will appoint teams of internationally recognised designers (architects and engineers) to undertake the design of the stations along the extension. MDN’s reason for doing this is to produce stations that will help create a perception in Italy and overseas of Naples as a modern, economically vibrant and cultured city.

As a result of your international reputation, your team has been invited to prepare a concept design for a landmark station at Santa Maria del Pianto, adjacent to the city’s main cemetery, Poggioreale.
