J.Mayer.H have designed a railway station that forges a link between Europe and Asia

Designed by German architecture practice J.Mayer.H, this international railway station in Akhalkalaki in Georgia forms part of the construction of the new Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway.

It provides a pivotal connection between Azerbaijan and Turkey through to Georgia. Improving the economic relations between Europe and Asia this connection is of strategic importance for all three countries. A different gauge of the rail lines requires a break-of-gauge in Akhalkalaki, the first stop on Georgian side near the Turkish border. 

With its undulating cantilevers the station’s roof and meshed metal façade will give shelter to up to three million passengers per year.
