The city of Dnipro is well known as the kernel for supremacy in engineering, metallurgy, and manufacturing. The inspiration for the design of this metro station is from the rich traditions of the city which are visible in welded steel entrance pavilions.
About the metro line
This metro line is the first and only metro line in Dnipro, eastern Ukraine. Due to its short length, the Dnipro Metro system is the shortest in the world. The six stations segment was opened on 29 December 1995 and connected the Vokzalna station to Pokrovska station.
The three new metro stations (Teatralna, Tsentalna, and Muzeina) will connect Mussina and academic institutions in Dnipro’s eastern district with the city center and the Dnipro-Holovnyi railway station.
Aim of the design
Reducing the traffic congestion in central Dnipro.
The metro line will incorporate parks, beaches, and other recreational spaces on the banks of the Dnipro River in the east which will be easily accessible from the city center.
About the design
The design proposed for a family of thin structural shells are to be constructed from the recycled steel from Dnipro’s local foundries. As mentioned earlier these sculpted pavilions enlighten about Dnipro’s rich craftsmanship in steel
Each entrance pavilion is situated within a new public plaza, providing a landmark to the area, indicating access to the city's metro.
The hall ticket station has the individual design for each station while interior concourses, corridors, and platforms that share a cohesive formal and spatial logic give Dnipro metro station a unique identity
As passengers traverse the stations, the interiors are designed to guide them safely, comfortably, and enjoyably to ensure they have a pleasant journey across the city.
As a result of excavation and engineering work carried out on Dnipro's metro line in 2016, Zaha Hadid Architects has begun building three new metro stations. A significant part of the city's transportation system upgrade has been the construction of three new deep-level metro stations. Passenger service will be available at the three stations by 2025.
