I voted for the first proposal. It looks much better than the second.

What's wrong with the current HBF? The current terminal is very functional and fairly attractive for a postwar station.

If I had to choose, I would go with the second proposal.

Yes its functionally,but its generally an outdated station.And I really wouldnt call it attractive.
The Deutsche bahn is currently building and renovating a lot of Germanys bigger and smaller stations.
they want to improve the quality for the traveller,since the competition, mainly from low cost airliners has risen.

the current station:

The first proposal looks like the design of the dutch bureau Benthem Crouwel, one of the three winners.

http://www.fsw-info.de/projekte/proj...te_akuell.php?
the one design bij Gewers, Kuhn und Kuhn doesn't look like the first proposal;

wow! great! thx for the info.

But if go to the official website of Gewers,kuehn and Kuehn you find the proposal which I posted.

http://www.gkk-architekten.de/

Its a little confusing.
But I think their proposal looks a little different than the dutch one.

The DB proposal is muchmore attractive to me. The second one looks like an airport terminal building.

Where would this be located in Munich? And what will become of the current station.

At this stage, I can't vote, as I need more information on services and design, and more renderings, especially inside both in the atrium and main train hall.
