STEEL FRAME CONSTRUCTION
The translation from wood framing construction to steel was challenging, as redesigning of not only tectonic aspects of the station but also the perceptual conditions was pertinent. Ultimately, the large spanning abilities of steel and conditions of the existing site in Georgetown informed the overall composition of the design, as curvilinear steel trusses were utilized to “anchor” the structure to the existing bridge. These trusses were used to give the station a very strong directionality southward towards a green space existing beside the bridge in an effort to preserve the remainder of the existing lot to be an enjoyable public park space. The kinetic aspect of the station is reflected in sliding panels which can be adjusted by the user concerning seasonal and unique conditions of the site.
