New high speed railway station

Florence - 2008-2011

Final design is based on architectural design by Sir N. Foster and structural design by ARUP.

The Station, 500x52 m, is underground for 25 m: final design has changed the construction technology from bottom-up to top-down.

The part above ground - having two suspended levels - is realized with steel arches spanning 172 m.

Among preparatory works an hydraulic underpass 150 m long has been designed, to be realized with the ‘push-in’ technique under rails.
