Facts Roofing surface: 15,000 m² | Seismic structural design

The Metro Station Garibaldi is located in the direct neighbourhood of the Central Train Station Nervi in Naples. A 300 m long and 20 m wide trench is the extension of the entrance to the station.

As roofing, "trees" are growing extensively. The steel structure is partially covered with steel panels providing shade and additional glass panels to protect from rain. Based on a structural element with the dimensions of 50 m x 28 m, three further different modules were developed for the assembly in order to create the appearance of a coincidental arrangement.
