The new Metromover station by Weston Williamson will be a world class addition to showcase Miami’s commitment to improving public transport. The new station is simple in layout and offers great comfort and weather protection.
It will be built to fit with the Museum Park master plan, positioned on axis with the new Plaza between the new Art and Science museums.
The transparent membrane of the innovative Etfe material ensures great views from the station.
From the Architect:
The new station is simple in layout and offers great comfort and weather protection. A transparent membrane of the innovative ETFE material ensures great views from the station and presents a modern efficient image for the Metromover and Miami.
At night the station is lit internally – glowing and changing colour as the trains arrive and depart. The power for the lighting is provided by solar cells and a wind powered generator which will emphasise Miami’s green credentials. In addition to greater passenger comfort, the new station provides greater access for users. Connections are improved, knitting the Metromover into this new cultural quarter of the city.
The key aims are; green + glamorous, sustainable, safe + secure, accessible + affordable. a world class metromover station to express civic pride and a catalyst to encourage the use of public transport to combat climate change.
