DESIGNING MULTI-MODAL STATIONS WITHIN HISTORIC DOWNTOWNS

In this article, the author outlines the unique challenges that were faced in designing a multimodal station within a historic downtown area of a small city. Focus of the project was the architectural and urban integration of the multimodal station and new patterns of movement for the city The author details the design approaches that were taken by a class of architecture students at the University of Nebraska to overcome them. A number of designs were proposed that dealt with renovation and relocation issues. Connecting parking with existing and new forms of transportation within a historic setting was of primary concern. Additional issues that needed to be addressed in the project included pedestrian and mechanical movement, land use, zoning, environmental and ecological issues, soil conditions, parking, and existing road and sidewalk conditions.
