World Architecture News Names ARTIC Best Transport Project of 2015
World Architecture News (WAN) has honored the Anaheim Regional Transport Intermodal Center (ARTIC) with the WAN Transport Award for 2015.
Submitted by the city of Anaheim, ARTIC was one of six projects shortlisted for WAN’s prestigious Transport Award and won the top honor.
“Located in Anaheim, USA this project sets a new precedent for civic-minded transit hubs, transforming a key area of the city into a pedestrian and bike friendly, destination. ARTIC connects more than ten modes of transportation, including future high speed rail, and is one of the most advanced transit centres in the world, employing a high-tech ETFE cladding system for maximum daylighting and environmental control.”
“‘This is a wonderful manifestation of public transport. It has a very clear interior and is structurally elegant. It feels good to support the symbolic values of public transport in the states and I think this project can stand out in that way. It is good to support the transport evolution in America,’ said jury member Olof Hallberg, Partner at Abako.”
ARTIC has won more than 30 industry awards and is expected to earn LEED Platinum certification.
