dc.description.abstractRESEARCH QUESTION: How can city-centre public buildings be regenerated in urbanised China? Presently, with the continuous growth of the economy in China, urbanisation has developed rapidly. The increasing urban population has put significant pressure on many of the original public building spaces in the city centres. The pressure of high levels of urbanisation in China not only has severely damaged the original relationship between architecture and the city, but also reduces the quality of life for urban residents. Public buildings and spaces are the places where the population gather together and are vital landmarks of a city. Therefore, there needs to be a harmonious relationship between public building space and the urban fabric, as they manifest the economics and vitality of the city. This project concentrates on how to regenerate the public building spaces in the city centre. It focuses specifically on redesigning Jinan Railway Station (Jinan, Shandong) and its surrounding context. This project is based on the exploration of urbanisation, urban design and public building space theories. Furthermore, it combines the advanced design concepts, some important precedent studies of contemporary railway stations from around the world and the city’s unique cultures to create the appropriate design approaches for the new Jinan Railway Station. The future design intention for the Jinan Railway Station is to entirely remove the original building and replace it with a multi-functional building complex. Traffic system services within the new design include not only trains but also extend to a subway line and space for buses, taxis and private cars. New technology such as E-ticketing and security lights will be used in a variety of public places within the design to make the architectural form and space of the complex more open, also to ensure maximum safety of passengers and commuters. Ultimately, the outcome of this project is a railway station and surrounding transit squares design that responds to the demand for rapid urbanism and promotes effective transportation of people through Jinan city centre. This design will transfer Jinan Railway Station and its surrounding space as an urban landmark station public space that supports a harmonious relationship between Jinan city’s people and the stationen_NZ
