Designed by Arthur Kupreychuk , the proposal for the railway station, located in Sevastopol, Crimea, Ukraine, consists of a passenger terminal building and a hanging in the air cloud-canopy above it. The supporting structure of the canopy is similar to the structure of an airship. The canopy strives upward by buoyancy forces, if its average density is less than the density of the atmosphere.
