Reimagining Penn Station

The original beaux arts Penn Station was demolished in 1963 amidst public outrage, and the largest commuter train station in the United States was pushed underground to make way for Madison Square Garden, a stadium for events, making the daily grind a bit smellier, hotter and less pleasant for the 300,000-odd straphangers traveling from the tristate area who pass through every day. Below, three firms, SHoP, DS+R, and H3 Hardy Collaboration reimagine the space in its current context. Designs were presented at the Times Center by the Municipal Arts Society on May 29th. via dezeen.

The original Penn Station by McKim, Mead and White

The original station’s demolition inspired a hotbed of debate, and redesigning Penn Station for the future has become the cause célèbre of generations of architects and planners, intent on reiviving a (maybe partially imagined) golden age of civic building in the United States. Here, three New York firms reimagine how the station could be returned to its former glory, but this time with futuristic curtain walls and cantilevered construction throughout.
