Zürich Hauptbahnhof
Well-orientated

In 2014 Dürig architecture firm, headed by Jean-Pierre Dürig, successfully restructured Zürich's main train station without interfering with the listed landmark. Slanted vertical shafts - fitted with staircases, escalators and lifts - lead from street level to the shopping arcades and trains below. Their geometric structures point passengers in the right direction, making for suitably efficient form of wayfinding. - MSS
