This project is an underground station at Manners Mall. It is one station of a series to service the Wellington CBD with a proposed light rail transit system.
The design was based on tracking the movements and paths of people and traffic on the site. These paths were translated to a network of structure to bridge the cut-and-cover trench for the train. With traffic removed from street level, the undulating surface creates an urban landscape for pedestrians.
As part of the project, light, heat and acoustic studies were undertaken to assess these qualitative performances and how they add to the overall design.
This project was featured in the 2011 Victoria Annual Graduate Magazine.
