PROJECT SUMMARY

Main Station Stuttgart

The project places the railway station underground to recover land and to create a new urban area, combining structural and landscape aspects.

The Deutsche Bahn project to add a new high-speed line for this city laid out in an underground tunnel at a right angle to the existing tracks started construction in 2015. This will free up development space for a vast new urban quarter.
