Maracanã Train and Metro Station

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2014

Maracanã Multimodal Station, part of the renewal plan for Maracanä Stadium surroundings, was designed to integrate metro and railway systems.
The new station, clearly defined by the connection of footbridges, mezzanine and train platforms, is covered by a generous tree-like steel structure with branched columns. The light roof with PTFE membrane cladding grants translucency to the building through a harmonic transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. Linear roofs made out of steel columns and membrane cladding were extended along the train platforms.
