An exciting new generation of railway architecture has emerged in Europe and elsewhere over the past decade. This book explains the reasons for the renaissance of the station as a building type and the current changes it is undergoing. The functional, social and technical factors which shape railway architecture are examined. As stations are essential elements of sustainable development, the environmental benefits of railways are also discussed. Essential guidance is provided for those who design, commission or manage railway stations. By drawing on technical design manuals and examples of recent stations (many designed by leading architects) the book gives help and instruction to all those with an interest in the future of railway architecture.
