Trance_it Center

Reiser-Umemoto Studio

In 'Trance_it Center' the line predominates architecturally and establishes a relationship between systems of movement and structure.  The terminal is experienced rhythmically as the traveler moves through the ribbed concourse and out beneath the super-structure.  This rhythm is evocative of the trance-like state experienced when passing repeating objects, which blur at a high rate of speed.

This High-speed rail (HSR) transit center is located in Escondido, CA at the cross-axis of the existing light-rail line and the proposed HSR line, near the I-15 and SR-78 interchange.  A minor league baseball stadium for the San Diego Padres farm system has also been proposed for a nearby lot and is shown here to explore the potential of the site.  This proposal relocates the current Escondido Transit Center to this site, thereby consolidating the proposed HSR line with the extant Sprinter light rail line, buses, taxis, and the Rail Trail bike path.  Consolidation facilitates transfers between these systems, and better serves the masses traveling to and from the stadium.

In automobile-dependent Southern California alternative systems of transportation are gaining momentum but they are localized and limited.  HSR promises to connect these localized systems, therefore alleviating congestion, linking communities, and providing an alternative for long-distance travel.  Furthermore, HSR stations embody the potential to serve as urban icons and promote densification.
