    OVT Centraal station

DESCRIPTION

At Rotterdam Central, European travellers enter the Netherlands and Dutch travellers enter Europe.

The old station by Sybold van Ravesteyn was out of step with current requirements with respect to size, layout and grandeur.

Rotterdam is to get a new Central Station.The design of Team CS for Rotterdam Central strives to embed the central station again in the center of Rotterdam. With the development of the High Speed Line (HSL), the design establishes the new station as a major hub in being a part of European transportation network. The new Rotterdam Central Station, in every respect, must be capable to match the efficiency, capacity, comfort, and style of other major stations such as Madrid, Paris, London, and Brussels.

The new building's shape expresses the internal logistics of this transport hub. Marking the onset of Rotterdam's 'cultural axis', the new Grand Central Station points the way to the city's heart.
