Railway platforms with cellular roofstructures

Dynamic model of railway platforms.
In order to capture the aesthetics and dynamics embedded in railways this model is set up according to some basic rules. Platforms are allways tangent to track, they adapt to the landscape and injects the sites with new types of space and connections.
Diagram of an ordinary platform configuration and a dynamic model allowing different configurations according to a number of site specific parameters as well as design principles.
The concept intends to visualize the movement and dynamics in a system of platform configurations. A system which grows in to a cellular roofstructure with pods that distribute light and sound. Parameters are controlling length, width and height as well as curvature, position and intensity. They are set up based on rules of optimization as well as design principles.
