Default Houston Central Station

Hmm I thought the central station Idea was dead..guess not.Houston's Trafalgar Square? Big name architects vie to design futuristic METRO Central Station - 2012-Jan-27 - CultureMap Houston.. personally I would go for the future look, if your going to bill yourself as space city then push to reflect that look

i like the graffiti design modern looking one.

i love some people's comments about how it isn't like Grand Central. I guess they have never been to downtown Houston or know where the rail runs through (hint: space issue)

when all the rails are done they can build something more like a central hub with businesses. till then there is no use for it

Basically how I feel. SHoP is the best one. But Snøhetta is a great alternative. Stay away from Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis Architects.
