Thinking Beyond the Station: PALAK GUPTA

Location: Karjat, Maharashtra, India 

The drawing in the form of a sectional perspective aims to highlight the construction and working of the main structural members of the design. Karjat, being a dormitory city, where the majority of the population travels daily to Mumbai for work, a railway station would play quite a contrasting role, building a different animation.

Hence a station in the context of such a city, stands a potential to become an “anchor of growth” to direct urban growth of the city, serving much more than just a transport facility. A new and vital impetus is given to the station design, so rather than merely designing the station around the activities that already took place there, the expanded architecture of the new station design directs and determines how people use and move in and around the building.
