@general huo:

thats intersting news about that new station besides honquiao airport.
Do you have more information? When will they start building it--and specially: what will the design be?Whos the architect?

And last but not least: what about the maglev?
Is is already decided that it will only go to the airport, or is there any chance, that it could go for Hangzhou as well?

Architecturally. A lot of extra money is spent on the extravagant shape, whereas capacity is the same as a smaller square building.

yes, for making this shape having any sense, the trains on the outer tracks would have to be shorter, so people can enter and exit the train without getting washed by the rain, and in the middle, the trains can be long....

what a nonsense...........

Not necessarily, the outer tracks still have roofs on them. I don't know about other countries but I know that a lot of Asian railways have roofs on their outerplatforms.

Very original and nice station!

I did not see it when I went to Shanghai in October 2005.

I arrived to another train station, from Beijing.

My only problem with this project is that it takes up too much space in the city, because of it's unusual circular space it doesn't allow for maximum area. But i've been to the train stations in Shanghai, as long as it's maintained well and organized it think it will be used efficiently and the people who use it will be happier to be in this kind of a building

From the earliest pictures I was hoping that it would look a little more traditional. Maybe using Reds and Greens. But in any case it's a great structure. I love it!
