About the Project:
The shell is filled with helium. Guy lines make it stiff in the space. Aluminum frame consisting of longitudinal and transverse trusses makes the external form hard, the gas is inside a rigid framework in bags (cylinders) made of a gas-tight material, facing is made of fiberglass uniform panels. The passenger terminal building provides the simplest and shortest routes from the station square to the platform. Both of two main facades are made as display boards, for simplicity and clarity of orientation.
