Naples Afragola is an Italian high-speed railway station near Naples (designed by Zaha Hadid), that was inaugurated on 6 June 2017, with regular traffic for passengers starting from 11 June 2017. The station, located in the city of Afragola, in the Naples metropolitan area, was developed with the intention of it being serviced by all high-speed trains on the Rome–Naples high-speed line, aside from those that do not start or finish at Napoli Centrale station, but instead operate over the Naples–Salerno high-speed line.

Italia Afragola high-speed railway station

  1. 1. The high-speed Napoli-Afragola railway station designed by Zaha Hadid
  2. 2. The Complete Zaha Hadid, with an introduction by Aaron Betsky, is published by Thames & Hudson
  3. 3. The high-speed Napoli-Afragola railway station has been designed with an innovative bridge concept
  4. 4. Naples Afragola is an Italian high- speed railway station near Naples (designed by Zaha Hadid), that was inaugurated on 6 June 2017, with regular traffic for passengers starting from 11 June 2017
  5. 5. Lying above the tracks, its bridge-like conformation is 400 metres long and 44 wide
  6. 6. Zaha Hadid (1950-2016) Zaha Hadid's pioneering vision redefined architecture for the 21st century and captured imaginations across the globe
  7. 7. The station, located in the city of Afragola, in the Naples metropolitan area, was developed with the intention of it being serviced by all high-speed trains on the Rome–Naples high-speed line, aside from those that do not start or finish at Napoli Centrale station, but instead operate over the Naples–Salerno high-speed line
  8. 8. Napoli Afragola station was conceived of under a wider plan which called for the development of 13 new stations at various sections along Italy’s existing high- speed rail network
  9. 9. As designed, it is to be operated as a major rail interchange for Italy's southern region, serving a total of four individual high- speed lines, three inter-regional lines, as well as a single local commuter route
  10. 10. On occasion, the station has been referred to as being the ‘Gateway to the South’ and is considered to be a major transport hub and regional gateway for Naples
  11. 11. According to Filippo Innocenti, project director at Zaha Hadid, from the project's onset, the main station building was envisioned as being built on a large bridge positioned above all eight of the tracks and will have four levels with a maximum height of 25 metres
  12. 12. This is a work of infrastructure which from 2022 will become a true intermodal hub, thanks to the links between long- distance and regional rail lines which are to be made shortly: the Naples- Cancello-Frasso Telesino line and the extension of the Circumvesuviana railway
  13. 13. The investment in the tender process for this first phase is 60 million euros
  14. 14. The project also includes an external area of around 150,000 square metres, featuring green areas, around 1,400 parking spaces (when complete), and 53 places for taxis and kiss&ride drop-offs that also have a reserved lane. Fifteen places are allocated for local and longer-distance buses
  15. 15. The central body of the station is 400 metres long and crosses the tracks like a large bridge, with an area of 30,000 square metres, it is laid out over four levels
  16. 16. When up and running, it is a transport hub that will serve an urban market of around three million people
  17. 17. Reinforced concrete, Corian cladding, structural steel and glazed panels are the ingredients used by Zaha Hadid Architects for the new Napoli- Afragola high- speed train station
  18. 18. Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the new train station Napoli-Afragola is a building in the form of a bridge whose geometric shape is based on passenger flow
  19. 19. A thermal solar system has been included in the design to produce sanitary water and heating in the winter
  20. 20. There are also polyvalent air conditioners which in spring and autumn and at all times when external temperatures are not very high, will perform better than those which use traditional cooling systems
  21. 21. The use of these two systems, as well as bringing unquestionable advantages in terms of energy use and the saving of numerous tonnes of CO² emissions, has also meant the elimination of the production of fluids from methane-burning boilers, reducing the environmental impact
  22. 22. The station was conceived to cross the barrier given by the existing railway by creating an elevated walkway that integrates the two sides by straddling the tracks, and offers a second transit hub in support of the Napoli Centrale station located ten kilometres south
  23. 23. Dame Zaha Mohammad Hadid (1950 –2016) was an Iraqi-British architect. She was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize, in 2004. She received the UK's most prestigious architectural award, the Stirling Prize, in 2010 and 2011. In 2012, she was made a Dame by Elizabeth II for services to architecture, and in 2015 she became the first and only woman to be awarded the Royal Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects
  24. 24. She was described by The Guardian of London as the 'Queen of the curve‘, who "liberated architectural geometry, giving it a whole new expressive identity.” Her major works include the aquatic centre for the London 2012 Olympics, Michigan State University's Broad Art Museum in the US, the Guangzhou Opera House in China, Heydar Aliyev Center in Azerbaijan, Bridge Pavilion in Zaragoza, Spain
