New Generation Rail Stations – will they be fit for purpose?

A talk by Nille Juul-Sørensen, Arup

new-generation-rail-stationsHow can transport systems and rail stations be designed to deliver a service for a new generation of passengers?

In recent years, technology has radically altered the way we live our lives and our social behaviour and demands have correspondingly changed.

The next generation of transport users will be the first to be ‘connected digitally’ 24/7. Will the future design of interchanges – especially rail stations – and trains, together with associated wayfinding and information match these changes and the expectations of users?

How do we design rail stations in a way that is both sustainable and satisfying for the user? How can they fit to the very different urban fabrics of the world? Can we construct a very personal journey for both individuals and groups, to match the perceived benefits of car travel?

Nille is an award-winning architect who joined Arup after ten years as a partner in the architectural office of KHR Architects. He will give his personal perspective on some of these big questions using his experience on related projects around the world.
