 This project is located in distance of 15 kilometer from Tehran, Iran and Because of this, metro lines are on the ground. On the other hand existing airport does not support the future flight so development Plan of an airport will be implemented on the other side of metro station. Its noticeable that highway pass away between metro and airport. This comment guides us to a scheme that have these parts:

1. Metro station is not under ground

2. Metro station should be connected to the airport by pedestrian bridge (because of airport entrance elevation that is +8 meter)

3. Metro station should be connectable to development Plan of airport

Because of Spectacular view of green region around the airport, main idea is formed based on keeping the urban landscape and its relation to airport and metro which guide us through transparent or porous form. On the other side making vernacular form will attach the project to people mind and their culture. Existence of a highway between metro and airport make me using green space beside platform which effects on cube form and shape it.

As a result, Project is formed like a simple cube that is split by half-cylinder from corner to corner, giving us unselfish form alongside of the airport. This form affords a shelter from the element on platform that connect to urban landscape with green curtain between highway and platform, making different sense of space. This shape makes various views that brings Iranian arch to mind. This formal splitting of cube helps us to have mirror form, which can be used for future development plan of the airport that will be constructed on the other side of metro station.

In this metro design my emphasis is on relationship with green space, transparency and porous space! That means when people entrance into the metro, first of all they confront with integrated scape without column and roofed with space frame structure, guiding  people to the other side of void to reach to the expectations hall. Somewhere In celling change the rhythm of space by receiving the natural light that reminds us to Iranian bazar skylight. People who pass through the void above the big glass arch, can see other people in platform waiting for metro.

Metro station form is constructed by two huge cantilevers that are exactly symmetrical helping us to control their bending force therefore main structure of metro includes five elements to control shear and bending force. These elements are:

1. Connected cable to symmetrical cantilevers to neutralize bending forces.

2. Shear wall to control the shear force

3. Vierendeel frame to bear cantilevers weight

4. Curve cord-like shape arched glass to bear its weight

5. Space frame  to connect all structural element together
