Napoli Afragola railway station

Naples Afragola is an Italian high-speed railway station near Naples. It was inaugurated on 6 June 2017. The exterior features large glass panels forming winding shapes, described as evoking a moving train. It was designed by British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid. The station design responds to its adjacent business park and landscape, to encourage further nearby development. One major example of this design attention is the glazed roof, which features internal shading and acoustic baffles, limiting the amount of direct sunlight and glare on the concourse as well as directing excess heat away via purpose-built roof vents, this enabled natural ventilation practices to be used under normal conditions.
