Valley Metro Light Rail Transit Stations | Phoenix, Arizona
Client: Valley Metro
Huitt-Zollars served as Lead Designer for the six transit stations in Line Section 2, one of five line sections for the 20.3-mile "starter system" connecting Glendale, Phoenix, Tempe, and Mesa. The station consists of a kit of parts canopy screen system developed collaboratively in a series of charrettes. The Camelback Station is a bus transfer station with a Park and Ride Lot. The other five stations are similar in design except they are center street platforms in the wide Central Avenue right-of-way. A distinguishing feature of the stations are the large louver shade screens fitted with fabric canopies and growing vines to respond to summer weather.
