Text description provided by the architects. Hangzhou East railway station designed by CSADI is a massive three-dimensional transportation hub. It has provide multiple transportation service such as railway, underground, over ground, bus, coach, taxi ,exc.
The station architecture forms has cleverly reflect on the meaning of Hangzhou “the Qiantang bore” by using modern, fluency, full of tension steel structure work. The design of the station has represented the spirit of the city which is delicate and grand open.
The perfect combination of architecture forms, space and structural style has showed authenticity and rationality of structural. The roof of main station room spans 280 meters from south to north and the maximum outreach is 81 meters by using giant space truss work system. It has created the beauty and lightness of structural mechanics with sense of dynamic and futuristic.
The design has been using construction volume self-shading, movable external sunshade, natural ventilation by thermal pressure for passive energy conservation measure, and also using ground-source heat pump system, rooftop solar photovoltaic battery for active ecological technology. The roof with solar and photovoltaic cells lies with 79 thousands m2 of polycrystalline silicon solar photovoltaic modules. The generating capacity is about 10.04 MWP. The concept of sustainable green station will bring huge energy saving demonstration effect to the community.
