Work will resume on the Afragola Station by Zaha Hadid
The iraqi architect's new project in Naples
Zaha Hadid's project in Naples, Italy was first revealed in 2003, but was later put on hold in February 2012 owing to budget concerns. Now it has been announced that the project will resume work after a recent meeting of the RFI (Rete Ferroviaria Italiana), the company who own italy's railway network.
The Hadid project will sit 3km north of the city's centre and will serve as both a contemporary landmark and at catalyst for the future redevelopment of the area. Providing a gateway to Naples, Afragola Station aims to provide a modern transport interchange which will connect the city through long awaited TAV high-speed rail links.
