DCMP Airport Station

I think MWAA nailed it on the architecture for the station at the airport. Being the Harry Weese purest that I am when it comes to metrorail station architecture, this is a really good exception to that rule.

Ripped these from Refined Locally Preferred Alternative Section 106 Determination of Effects Report: Historic Architecture.

The station will also have 4 elevators, instead of the now standard 2 and 4 escalators between the mezzanine and the platform, no stairs.

  1. It is nice but I can't believe they can't bring it a little closer and run it through the middle of the short term parking lot.

  2. One of the reason why the station is adjacent to the garage has to do with the fact that the Eero Saarinen designed main terminal at Washington Dulles Airport International Airport is on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Building an elevated station in the short term parking lot would effect to overall appearance of the main terminal.
