The proposition for Birmingham New Street Station looks to deliver a notable design that, past making an impression, will have the option to impart the capacity of the structure and the character of its area at the focal point of Birmingham City, to the general population. To accomplish this it is proposed to give articulation to the dynamic idea of the railroad subject.

The geometries of movement and the twisting of observation created by development have been the motivation for the engineering articulation of the undertaking. The bifurcating, undulating, smooth types of the track field have been moved and inserted into the geometry of the structure to luxurious the city and to pass on its verifiable character as a transportation center, where different traffic frameworks –, for example, the renowned trenches, the roman streets and so forth merge and overlay. The structure intends to trigger another view of the urban settings around the station, by explicitly reflecting chosen zones of the urban scene around the station.

The structure approach means to restore consistency among structure and articulation in the new station plan, both in the cladding and in the re-association of the structure. The old structure of the structure was worked for an alternate presentation to the one is currently being looked for, both in authoritative and visual terms. As the cladding can’t be identified with the inside of the structure for pragmatic reasons, the plan of the façade has been identified with the outside space, making the structure an instrument to heighten the view of urban life in Birmingham’s downtown, rather than attempt to uncover its inward structure.

This methodology is an essential development of the innovator authoritative opinions of straightforwardness towards an increasingly down to business and vital methodology important to address the complexities of contemporary culture.

By transforming the outside downpour screen into a distorting, intelligent tempered steel surface, Birmingham New Street Station will be intended to deliver controlled impression of the encompassing urban field to mirror the once dim, presently brilliant Birmingham sky, the hordes of travelers, the trains entering and leaving the station, the tints of the nightfall and dawn, and other powerful systems present at the site. To feature the four primary passageways, huge ‘eye-formed’ media screens have been incorporated in the façade.

The field of reflections which comprises the outside envelope of the structure, and creates a steady personality, separates relying upon the open doors on each side of the structure.
