Delft Station’s impressive ceiling has been named Jury winner of the Architizer A+Award in the category Architecture+Ceiling. Arguably the most eye-catching feature of the new station, the ceiling features a vast historical map of Delft.
The map can be seen throughout the entire public space, from both the city entrance as well as the platforms. The visitors’ perception of the image changes continuously as they move through the building, creating a stunning welcoming experience.
Mecanoo architecten collaborated with Geerdes Ontwerpen to design the intricate overhead visual. The entire map consists of approximately 30 million dots printed on both sides of 1929 straight and bended lamellae.
Delft Station was also among the top five in the category Bus & Train Stations. The Bruce C. Bolling Municipal Building was a finalist in the category Architecture +Brick.
The Award Ceremony will take place in New York on May 12.
