A crop of my earlier picture that made it onto Front Page. The crop is to remove the information panel on the lefthand side of the original picture.

 

Liège-Guillemins train station is the main station of the city of Liège, in eastern Belgium. It is one of the most important hubs in the country and is on the high-speed train network. The station is used by 36,000 people every day.

 

This station by the architect Santiago Calatrava was officially opened in September 2009. It has 9 tracks and 5 platforms (three of 450m and two of 350m). All the tracks around the station have been modernized to allow high speed arrival and departure.

 

The new station is made of steel, glass and white concrete. It includes a monumental arch, 200 metres long and 35 metres high. The building costs were € 312 million.

 

The light was largely filtered by the snow cover on the roof, giving a very special illumination.

 

Enjoy it best large and on black.

 

See the whole series of this amazing piece of architecture.
