One word: Wow.


This is pretty gross/tacky interior design work though (IMO)

is the Quingdao Station a reconstruction/renovation of a old station, or is it a completely new station, that just looks as if its "old"?( not in terms of technology, but in terms of style)

I like that many stations incorporate traditional chinese architecture. It sets them apart from the international style you find almost everywhere today and is so exchangeable.

i like them all,,....but most i think the QingDao station, because of the use of those old buildings, are those buildings being part of the station, or is it just renovated surroundings, seems like a great innovative design for preserving the old, and building the new

wow this is awesome. how are these being constructed? private parties? govt? PPP?

in india they're trying to achieve this through the PPP model. But obviously it'll take much longer to achieve this level in India.

China's infrastructure is godly...

YES! Shanghai needs a grand neo-classical station like that too. They should demolish the tacky 80's Shanghai Railway Station and build something on par with Grand Central or Old Penn Station
