I remember passing this one on the way from Shenzhen to Shanghai. I instantly recognized the roof structure (unlike most other stations on the way). One of the more interesting station designs and a very good attempt at implementing traditional Chinese design motives.

Yes its roof design is consistent with Xiamen local architecture style. I was taking train from Xiamen to Shanghai on Jan 4 and walked around this station before the departure.

The designers of China's high speed rail network said "we're going big or going home!" Some really smart people who got this all together!

in the video it says the main structure is done. I guess they are working on interiors now. It'll open with GZ-Shenzhen-HongKong HSR.
