McDowell + Benedetti’s Terni’s Railway Station & Footbridge Underway

“An elegant object and engaging public realm design, giving strong form to Terni’s ambitious expansion plans. The clever strategy to reposition a part is an inspired idea for a second valuable link that continues the area’s urban improvement.”

This was how Prof. Paulo Desideri, the Competition Judging Panel Chairman , described the winning proposal for Terni’s railway station and landmark footbridge.

London based  McDowell + Benedetti have recently announced that their winning proposal is currently underway on site. With a budget of £3.5 million, this 180 m long footbridge and the railway station with their landmark tripod tower are going to act as Terni’s commuter hub to Rome.

The most prominent feature of this project is its inverted tripod tower, which is going to act as a landmark to be seen from three different points, the historic city center, the ring road, and the Umbrian Mountains nearby.

The tripod tower is 60 m long and supports two rings that cable the 180 m long footbridge that connects the station’s improvements together.

A new triple-height clerestory atrium space is sensitively integrated with the train station concourse improvements for 24 hour public realm access.
