This project investigates the thresholds of change that are inherent to a rail station. Current models in the United States are extremely utilitarian in nature. Instead, cities should strive to house stations that are energetic, engaging gateways; buildings that create a true sense of arrival and destination. Rail travel is finding new life in this country and architecture must respond. Station design should invoke the romantic sentiments that travel once did. With the future expansion of Wisconsinâ€™s rail network and Milwaukeeâ€™s transit system, the current Intermodal Station does not adequately meet the regionâ€™s needs. This project carefully reacts to the systems of site, program, movement, time, and culture. Located in a challenging site, this design addresses infrastructure as an urban healer, not a divider.
