Well Yinchuan is the provincial capital of a Hui (Muslim) Autonomous region so that makes sense!

The layout of above two stations are very much alike, i.e. seats, shops, restaurants, gates etc. They may be designed by the same team or it's proved to be the most efficient design of hugh railway stations?

Thanks. There are many tier III city stations yet to be discovered. Everytime a new HSR line opens, dozens of new stations pop up.

I'll try to post more of those "small" HSR stations.

They were designed by different architects.

Shanghai Hongqiao Transportation Complex was designed by Shanghai Xiandai Design Group - 现代建筑设计集团 (former East China Architectural Design Group 原华东建筑设计院)

While Hangzhou East Railway Station was designed by Wuhan-based South-Central Architectural Design Group (中南建筑设计院).

Both of them are big state-owned architectural design groups. And as it happened that I have Uni. classmates working for both.

RE similar layout, probably due to the Chinese GB - 建筑设计国家标准 (national design standards/codes).

Which HSR stations would you describe as being in Tier IV or higher cities? Not in cities at all, but in villages or countryside?
