Long Description:
The idea of the Ing. architect Patrik Kotas was that the glass hall of the station will shine at night to the open up to the neighbourhood and daylight will throw light on the boarding point.
The whole station area has a length of more than 120 m and is without internal columns. The hall structure is about 160 m long, 42 m wide and 20 m high. Two main crossed hingeless arches are fixed to concrete pylons. The geometry of all parts is very difficult with regard to design, manufacture and erection, because the majority of edges are circumflex. The weight of the structure is about 950 t.

Lovosicka and Vysocanska crossing

19000
