The Platform’s Canopy of Tiburtina Rail Station in Rome is an anticipation of the project station itself. Indeed its embossed structure has been replicated conceptually for the large cover station.

The canopy is composed by a still structure that sup- ports glass and perforated panels. This solution wants to answer to the needs of visibility for the new station, as well as rain and sun shelter. This light and complex structure accommodates signs, electrical and plumbing systems as well.
