Agenda Juni 2017 @ OMI

Infopunt Rotterdam Architectuur Maand 2017

June 2 - July 15

Train and the City

During the Rotterdam Architecture Month 2017, OMI presents the exhibition «Train and the City» by KCAP Architects&Planners.

Since the birth of railway transport, cities have developed rapidly around their stations and continue to do so. Today, the arrival of high speed trains and the improvement of transportation, brings us to imagine and create new visions for train stations and their surroundings. «Train and the City» invites you to explore a selection of KCAP’s oeuvre that deals with station areas as a driving force for the development of European cities.

Tijdens de Rotterdam Architectuur Maand 2017, presenteert OMI de tentoonstelling «Train and the City» door KCAP Architects&Planners.

Sinds de uitvinding van transport per trein zijn steden snel gegroeid rondom hun stations en dat doen tot op de dag van vandaag. Tegenwoordig leidt de opkomst van de hogesnelheidstreinen en de verbetering van het transport tot de ontwikkeling van nieuwe visies voor stations en hun omgeving. «Train and the City» neemt je mee op een ontdekkingsreis langs projecten uit het oeuvre van KCAP. Projecten gericht op stationsgebieden als een drijvende kracht voor de ontwikkeling van Europese steden.
