fantastic design! m.

Architecture firm Skidmore Owings & Merrill has unveiled its vision to transform the Beaux-Arts 30th Street Station and its surrounding area in Philadelphia.

SOM’s masterplan covers a 175-acre (70 hectares) area around the station, which is currently the third busiest in the US and projected to see a further increase in transit activity.

The firm worked in association with Parsons Brinckerhoff, OLIN and HR&A Advisors on the project, which will involve the overhaul of the 1933 station building designed by Chicago architecture firm Graham, Anderson, Probst and White.
