Guangzhou Railway Station
Neighboring cities join new transit to form a cohesive network.
China’s unparalleled economic success and rapid shift from a rural to an urban society has resulted in the rapid growth of the metropolis of Guangzhou and surrounding cities. CallisonRTKL created a master plan to assimilate the city’s new $1.6 billion railway station into a cohesive transportation and development program, incorporating Guangzhou’s four neighboring cities to create one cohesive, easily navigable metropolitan area. Much of the design is defined by ecocorridors, and a sustainable integration of rivers, mountains, forests and rice fields, making this environmentally conscious plan one that will succeed now and into the future.
