The subway train that can climb a skyscraper:



Stations in cities like London and New York are traditionally vast, cathedral like structures.
However, a new proposal calls for trains to climb up the side of skyscrapers to form the first vertical stations.

this would free up space in city centres, and allow passengers to be routed out of the station more effectively, its inventors say.

Called the Hyper Speed Vertical Train Hub, it could replace stations with a giant skyscraper, according to Christopher Christophi, Lucas Mazarrasa, the Londoners who came up with the idea.

Train carriages pivot like a Ferris wheel then they approach, and magnets on the side of the building allow them to rise up.

'The Hyper Speed Vertical Train Hub, aims to resolve the inevitable challenges that cities will face by 2075, and offers a deliverable and sustainable solution for the future of the transport generation,' they say.

The project will become a ‘repeatable’ piece of infrastructure that can be implemented to support any city around the world, connecting to a new Hyper Speed under and over ground network, with trains covering an average distance of 300miles in 30 minutes, they hope.


'The Hyper-Speed Vertical Train Hub aims to replace existing flagship train stations and create new key connective points for the exchange of people and goods with the new hyper speed network. '
The proposal will ‘flip’ the traditional form and function of the current train station design vertically, and re-form it into a cylindrical mass to increase the towers train capacity. 
The train tower aims to eliminate the current impact that traditional stations have currently on land use.

Passengers will travel into the main lobby allowing travelers to ascend through the atrium and through the platforms and onto the carriages.

'The trains will also create a dynamic and kinetic facade, one that will be continuously evolving and responsive to the workings of the vertical hub, a language that can be read by the whole city,' the team say. 
As the train travels and transitions from its horizontal formation, and ascends up the facade vertically, the carriages will pivot similar to that on a ‘Ferris wheel’, allowing the passengers within the carriage to remain in an upright position and facing towards the cityscape. 
The carriages will be supported by a magnetic structure located at either side, eliminating the need for rails beneath, and allowing the carriages and its passengers to connect to the tower.

Stations in cities like London and the big apple are historically immense, cathedral like structures.
However, a new proposal calls for trains to climb up the side of skyscrapers to form the first vertical stations.

this would release house in town centres, and permit passengers to be routed out of the station more effectively, its inventors say.

Called the Hyper Speed Vertical Train Hub, it might replace stations with a large building, according to St. Christopher Christophi, lucas Mazarrasa, the Londoners who came up with the concept.

Train carriages pivot sort of a rotating mechanism then they approach, and magnets on the side of the building enable them to stand up.

'The Hyper Speed Vertical Train Hub, aims to resolve the inevitable challenges that cities can face by 2075, and offers a deliverable and sustainable resolution for the long run of the transport generation,' they say.

The project can become a ‘repeatable’ piece of infrastructure which will be enforced to support any town round the world, connecting to a brand new Hyper Speed underneath and over ground network, with trains covering a mean distance of 300miles in half-hour, they hope.

'The Hyper-Speed Vertical Train Hub aims to exchange existing flagship train stations and build new key connective points for the exchange of individuals and merchandise with the new hyper speed network. '

The proposal can ‘flip’ the traditional type and function of the present train station style vertically, and re-form it into a cylindrical mass to extend the towers train capability. 
The train tower aims to eliminate the present impact that ancient stations have currently onto land use.

Passengers can travel into the most lobby allowing travelers to ascend through the atrium and through the platforms and onto the carriages.

'The trains also will produce a dynamic and kinetic facade, one which will be ceaselessly evolving and attentive to the workings of the vertical hub, a language which will be browse by the entire town,' the team say. 

As the train travels and transitions from its horizontal formation, and ascends up the facade vertically, the carriages can pivot like that on a ‘Ferris wheel’, permitting the passengers at intervals the carriage to stay in an upright position and facing towards the cityscape. 

The carriages are supported by a magnetic structure set at either side, eliminating the requirement for rails at a lower place, and permitting the carriages and its passengers to attach to the tower.
