Rotterdam Centraal railway terminal is shortlisted for the Dutch Design Award 2014 in the category Habitat.
The judgement of the awards committee Ã¯s:
â€œThe design uplifts the whole surrounding area. The new station gives the environment a clear focus point and creates a sense of tranquility, allowing the design to function well. Although the signage is still in development, the design directs the flow of people effectively. The new station creates space and actually gives the visitor the feeling to be traveling. The cooperation between various disciplines has led to a phenomenal result.
The 12th edition of this award counts six categories. An international jury will chose one winner in each of the categories. These prize winners will be announced at the Awards Show of the DDA on October 18th, during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. The projects will be shown at the exhibit in that same week, from October 18 to 26.
