Great Transit Hub in Detroit

Please find attached a wonderful article – with lots of pictures – from Metropolis Magazine of the new multi-modal transit hub in Detroit. Some particulars: 25,000 s.f, $22.5 million, funded by FTA, Michigan DOT and land donated by City, architect – Tushar Advani of Parsons Brinkerhoff. The goal of the hub was not purely functional but also to create an iconic building that is a destination and serves as a catalyst to develop the neighborhood and further connect surrounding urban uses – both and architecture AND urban design exercise. Because of Detroit’s 4 season climate they have outdoor/indoor waiting areas – with the indoor area designed as a plaza that includes shops and cafes. It is quite an inspiration as well as great description of how these projects are realized.
