Below is a project I did for a course called Architectural Design. In the course we were asked to propose a train station in Providence that also had to be a gateway to the city. Also, the design had to be a place of exchange. My design was shaped by the exisiting site and was meant to not have visible walls. Instead only the floors are visible because of the vast amount of glazing and thus the building appears to be floating. The building invites people in due to the lack of opaque solidity. Once people are in they can view a scaled model of Providence in the middle. The building has openings on each floor to allow for vertical viewing exchange. The train station is not only a place to take trains but also has various program such as a bar, restaurant, gift shop, and news stand.
