Arnhem Central Platforms win the National Steel Prize 2012 for utility buildings

UNStudio's recently completed platform coverings and elevated footbridge for the Arnhem Central train station in the Netherlands have been awarded the National Steel Prize 2012 for utility buildings.

The design concept for the new platform roofs provides a sense of light and space. Large roof lights, which together with the structural spans, add to a positive experience of the transfer platforms and surroundings. The elevated footbridge is fully integrated in the design, connecting the different platforms with each other and with the north entrance of the train station. The electrified system has also been integrated into the roof structure, giving a uniform appearance across all platforms.
