The station is in the town, the town is in the station

A vast area opening on to the town, the new Liège-Guillemins station is open to view, emphasizing its role as a centre of exchange and communication.
The structure has no façades in the traditional sense of the term. So there are no walls, no obstacles, but a rhythmical, transparent structure which gives the edifice an extraordinarily graceful fluidity. The design of the station by the architect Santiago Calatrava, which is based on complete symmetry, gives it great visual impact. As for the materials used: concrete, steel, glass and natural stone - they strengthen its architectural character.

La gare est dans la ville, la ville est dans la gare!

Vaste espace ouvert sur la ville, la nouvelle gare de Liège-Guillemins s’expose aux regards, soulignant ainsi sa vocation de lieu d’échanges et de communications.
Il n’y a pas de façades au sens classique du terme. Donc pas de murs, pas d’obstacles mais une structure rythmée, transparente qui confère à l’édifice une extraordinaire fluidité. La conception de la gare par l’architecte Santiago Calatrava, toute de symétrie, lui donne une très grande lisibilité. Quant aux matériaux utilisés - béton, acier, verre et pierre naturelle... ils renforcent encore son caractère architectural.
