This project was completed for the Texas Central Future Architects Design Competition, in which students from accredited architecture programs in Texas were invited to submit stations proposals for Texas Central's planned high speed rail line from Houston to Dallas. Our proposed terminal station for the Texas Central Light Rail sits on the edge of downtown Dallas, straddling the urban gradient between the city core and the Oak Cliff borough across the Trinity River floodplain. This edge condition is the backbone of our intervention, the perfect seam for insertion of a new Texas connectivity. Our intervention is comprised of two distinct spatial swells. The first is a porous, swooping framework of wooden cells, which compress and expand along the 1500ft massing according to solar analysis. The second is a walkable, sloping hill, housing the revenue-generating realty to support our station. The duality of our proposal gracefully addresses the edge condition inherent in tall and small Dallas, and creates intrigue when viewed from different points in the city. At its northern edge, the wooden framework rears skyward, framing the northern view of the Dallas skyline and impressing on all who dwell beneath the canopy an acute sense of arrival. The canopy also opens southward toward both Houston and the Trinity riverscape, newly developed with pedestrian and bike trails, framing the glitter and grain of the city with equal deference. The cellular, wooden canopy is both experiential, providing the grandeur and prestige necessary to punctuate the Texas Central Line, and pragmatic, supporting the translucent solar panels and thin concrete shells that seal the exoskeleton. Our station creates a pressure point common to both the established DART light rail and city bus routes, resulting in a delicate striation of the public transit palette. Our proposed Dallas station leads Texas toward sustainable transit with high walkability, self-reliant energy technology, and passive shading and ventilation tactics. Our proposed Dallas Terminal Station embodies the clean convenience necessary to new public transit, tucked neatly into a raised seam poised on the edge of a proud city center.
