Train station for the "Deutschland-Takt" at Stuttgart Airport

Design studio winter semester 2019 / 2020

At DLR - Institute of Vehicle Concepts, high-speed passenger trains for long-distance and feeder traffic have been developed under the project name NGT (Next Generation Train).
In cooperation with the DLR and architecture students of the Faculty 1, a through station is to be developed directly at Stuttgart Airport, which on the one hand will meet the German timetable and on the other hand, with up to 14 through tracks, will fulfill the guiding principle of "more mobility with less traffic" by creating optimal transfer possibilities for passengers between the European main lines, the long-distance buses and air traffic as well as the regional rail, bus and light rail traffic that converge at the airport.
The design task consists of the development of a functional and spatial concept for the horizontal and vertical connection of the different modes of transport and the Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre and in particular the structural design of a station concourse which, as a sustainable infrastructure, is appropriate to the task and the environment.
The interdisciplinary supervised design can be worked on individually or in groups of two.
