Liège-Guillemins train station: a ticket to tomorrow

The renovated railway station at Liege-Guillemins in Belgium

The 21st century is being defined by huge infrastructure investments across the cities of the world - major and more visble/usable being the trasportation networks and transit hubs. These Transit Cities are defining new urban paradigms and are fast becoming mixed-use mega structures that combine speed, densities and uses hitherto embodied only in airport architecture. With air travel becoming more expensive for short distances and less favored for its fuel-dependency; automobile-centric lifestyles changing in light of increasing oil prices and global warming concerns, more sustainable public transportation such as railway and commuter trains are going to change the we live, connect and commute in the 21st century cities.
