Stazione Tiburtina

Piazzale Stazione Tiburtina, Roma, Italy

Roma Tiburtina is the second largest railway station in Rome, after Roma Termini. Located in the north-eastern part of the city, it is being redeveloped as a hub for the Italian high speed rail services instead of Termini, which is a terminal station. The bridge-like railway station organization solves many issues. The building presents itself with a story cantilever to the city and its long span organization creates several spatial surprises. The new station is expected to reach a daily ridership of over 450,000 by 2015. It is served by 140 high speed trains and 290 regional trains every day.
