Abstract

This paper is based on a project developed within the 2012 Architecture and Construction Design Studio at Architecture of Building School, Politecnico di Milano. A project for a new railway station in Milan was the design topic. This paper resumes the early conceptual design stage. Considering architecture, structure and landscape, several design proposals are investigated. Jointly with Mathematical Models in Architecture and Numerical Analysis Studio, Structural analysis were performed by ADINA900. It proved to be an optimal and educational software tool for efficiently evaluating structural design decisions over the ordinary practice.
