Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Newmarket Railway Station, Auckland New Zealand

While looking up something else, I came across this.  The station was rebuilt in 2008-2010, and won an Auckland Architecture Award for 2010. .

It'd be another example of how to make a statement in design of a transit station and would have been another reference for the aesthetic approach to creating the design of the facades for the Silver Spring Transit Station.
