The transportation hub of Massy-Palaiseau, an actual « transportation campus » featuring a TGV high speed train station, 2 MRT suburban train stations and 35 bus lines, will host an additional station in the middle of a dense railway network, for the new metro line 18. We see it as a vast translucent vault. It brings natural light over passengers’ itineraries from underground levels to the footbridges crossing the train lines and acts as a signal on the horizon of the transportation hub.
