Sunport Transit Hub

A new transit hub for Albuquerque New Mexico. The design of this hub was driven by covering a large area with a small amount of material using a repeatable module.  Following in the lineage of romanticized modernist, the building incorporates a formal spacial arrangement, repetition,  and integrated ornamentation.  The building although is thoroughly modern in it's technology incorporating a post tension concrete lamella arch structure with an inflatable ETFE skin.  The station becomes a long linear clean and clear space which allows for easy way finding, a communal environment as well as the ability to ventilate as the building's saddlebag design pulls in outer air up through venturi hats at the top of the structure.
