Another of our “Italian” projects currently under construction involves the design of the new subway and train station ‘Centro Direzionale’ in Naples. Located in the correspondent high-rise business district drafted by Kenzo Tange in the 1970s, the complex topography of the new station’s sculptural timber roof aims to endow the urban landscape with a unique identity and experience.

Part of a major transportation investment program, Naples Metro Line 1 successfully integrates archaeology, architecture and contemporary art, with new stations conceived by internationally renowned architects, such as Sir Norman Foster, Massimiliano Fuksas, Alvaro Siza, Dominique Perault, Karim Rashid and Benedetta Tagliabue, that allow for entire new “underground” worlds being discovered.
