Amtrak Station

Description

Architecture 101, UC Berkeley

This Amtrak Station is located at Jack London Square in Oakland. The building design is part of a larger proposal to make Jack London Square a transit hub. The plan also included a BART Station, Ferry Building, and Bus Depot designed by other students in the class. The Amtrak Station design plays with solid and void by featuring the texture of shipping containers in the concrete structure. These imprints reference the nearby port and their effect on the natural landscape.
