Fully agreed. There is quite an insanity to keeping around eyesores for heritage value.

Looks fantastic. It reminds me of when I was a kid and you would see photos of how the future would look. I really like this design, I hope it looks even better in the flesh.

Just what I was thinking! Looks remarkably 'snazzy' & futuristic for a walkway.

I do like that. I just don't like how that dark building has pillars/poles to hold it up. It should just sit flat.

And potential inspiration for station entries of this kind:

Paris Metro entrance (Abbesses station)

No. That was Foster

Imagine how much nicer these renders would be without the overpass!

thanks, how about the new World trade center one? I should google I know...

I would agree with the removal of that overpass, but it kinda has to be there, with the bridge and all. So it needs a futurist to give it a makeover.

Beautiful! Thank you! Imagine standing at its base looking up...

I stopped being lazy, and looked up some Calatrava masterpieces. I like the bridges!!!

The station reminds me of the Lady Gaga's ARTPOP mask by Swedish designer Isabell Yalda Hellysaz.
