in the metropolis of the future, the strengthening of public transport and broadening of its possibilities encourages an exchange among people, ideas, and visions. research shows that the existence of permanent lines of public transport, namely those of a metro, play an essential role in spurring on harmonious economic development throughout a city’s diverse neighborhoods, a process that spreads outwards towards newer suburbs. our project for the saint germain metro station in rennes attempts to render concrete and visible this new conception of the metro’s urban significance by concentrating on intelligibility and on the quality of the station’s space. we wanted, from the first, to return to the fundamentals of what a metro station should be, identifying for ourselves the necessary qualities of a station dedicated to this means of transport: intelligibility, functionality, durability, accessibility, security. the complexity of a work, whether architectural or technical, creates within the user a certain difficulty in comprehending, grasping, or analyzing his or her encounter with it. architecture has changed little over time and it remains essential for the architect to introduce into complex projects ideas that are universal, simple, and clear.
