In 2004 the City of Naples commissioned several internationally renowned architects, such as Sir Norman Foster, Massimiliano Fuksas, Alvaro Siza, Domenique Perault, Karim Rashid and Benedetta Tagliabue to build a train station for the city’s new metropolitan line.


Known as the triple A,” art, architecture and archaeology” is the leitmotiv of the project, the intervention aims to give a highly recognizable identity to the formerly homogeneous setting.


With the design of this subway and train station -Centro Direzionale di Napoli-, EMBT generates new correlations between the city’s natural volcanic ground and the original 1970’s design of the artificial site by Kenzo Tange.


The new station, with its underground link to the city, will transform the area’s artificial surface into a complex topography with many different levels for pedestrians and an outstanding building with an intricate tectonic roof structure. Diverse public space will allow a physical reception of the city’s present and past and charts the topographical movements and dynamics of the local population.
