Design a railway station using the ARki modular builder
For the Re-imagining Railway Stations Competition, Network Rail invited proposals that will challenge and re-imagine what a ‘station’ could become in the 21st century. 7N Architects’ winning ‘HUB Station’ concept, selected from over 200 international entries, envisions the railway as a progressive, sustainable mode of transport with a pivotal civic role in serving communities throughout the UK.
The Hub Station modular builder was created in collaboration with Network Rail to provide users an easy way of creating new railway station designs. The modular builder allows the public to create their own stations from a kit-of-parts models developed by 7N architects. Users can easily to drag and drop these 3D models into the scene and create new configurations using the simple 3d tools.
The Hub station kit-of-parts design ensures build quality of future stations, allows greater flexibility when expanding stations, and reduces construction time. The Category E model shown above is a typical design for a new HUB station, built using the modular builder in ARki 10.
