Zaragoza Las Delicias Station, Zargoza Spain by Javier
The Estación Zaragoza Delicias in Zaragoza serves Spain’s high speed railway between Barcelona and Madrid. The highly efficient design for Zargoza’s new station handles a large number of visitors and high speed trains. Locals dislike the station because the modern skylights make it hot in the summer and cold in the winter, and because of it’s remote location.
The station was designed by Carlos Ferrater, J. M. Valero, José María F. Arranz, and E. Mateu. It opened in 2003, just in time for political elections.
The simple, rational space is capped by a sophisticated tetrahedra exterior structure with checkered skylights for the massive interior spaces. The spaces are simply broken up according to platform in three long rows.
