everywhere and nowhere
imagine a world with infinite trains

a vaulted transportation center appears in vast landscape. contextless but infinite, the station serves boundless infrastructure and passengers. its form is determined by rhythm, divided and subdivided, pushed and pulled. naturally, a location without context leads to a population with infinite context. those who pass through this train station are going to infinite locations for infinite reasons. what kind of transportation network is able to make stops in the middle of nowhere, but for an infrastructure that exists everywhere?

lacking solid walls and ceilings, the pavilion-like nature of the station maintains the typical archetype of a train station through its arches, vaults, and bays. the airy appearance of the structure compliments its nowhere location, allowing sight lines to nothing and encouraging interaction with nobody.
