EM2N, train maintenance building in Zurich (Switzerland)

 
The Swiss studio EM2N –led by Mathias Müller and Daniel Niggli –have made an undulating skin of fiber cement the cladding of a new railway facility, in the west zone of Zurich, for the maintenance, repair, and cleaning of trains as long as 400 meters. The 13,000-square-meter building is characterized by modular curvilinear panels that incorporate windows and doors, give dynamism and continuity to the architecture, and generate plays of lights and shadows with waves that take on higher reliefs towards the top. The volume is covered with a saw tooth structure with skylights facing north and photovoltaic panels oriented towards the south.
