The station, understood beyond an urban node, operates as an artifact that converges and connects people, reduces mobility time and suppresses physical barriers. We propose flexible equipment, with connections by bus and public bicycles. Its central module, naturally lit, humanizes the space: On a human scale, it allows for route decisions. The glass facade reflects the surrounding environment, creating a mixture of movements, shapes and colors, which enhance the experience inside. As a climate strategy, we adopted roof aeration, referencing the rich heritage of Amazonian architecture.
