If we are talking about architectural designs I think Shenzhen is the box capital of China.

[QUOTE=tjrgx;140928770]
Photo taken on June 29, 2017 shows the roof-mounted photovoltaic power system in the south railway station of Hangzhou

Glad to see those solar panels on the roof! Is this the first station with solar panel roof? -- Hope it will be implemented at a wider scale.
On a separate note, there is also research to catch and conserve the energy while trains approach/depart the stations to reuse.

That is regenerative braking and is nothing new. Storing the energy in graphene supercapacitors is, and CRRC has developed and deployed them in trains. The technology reuses 85 percent of the energy generated in braking.

Will feature faster services from Chongqing to Chengdu, avoiding congestion into Chongqing North. However it is not integrated into the Chongqing Metro system with two lines still under construction.

Another station is also due to open in Chongqing, Shapingba, itself will be a smaller station next to an established shopping district and Chongqing Metro's Line 1.

Together with Guangzhou main station, Guangzhou East and Guangzhou North railway stations, they will be jointly form one of six planned National Railway Passenger Transportation Centres by the Chinese Ministry of Railways.[7] Expected 2020 passenger delivery volume will be 80.14 million passengers.
Guangzhou South Railway Station is also a comprehensive transportation hub; passengers can interchange between high-speed long distance trains, Metro, long distance and local buses, taxi, etc. Guangzhou Metro Line 2 and Line 7 subway lines are located at or near the bottom of station complex Metro station.

We've been through this in the CHINA | High Speed Rail thread, and it is not the largest high-speed rail station, nor the largest underground high-speed rail station:

"Futian Station [...] is the largest underground railway station in Asia, and the largest high-speed railway station to be built completely underground worldwide.[1][2] The station covers 147,000 square meters.[3]"
