The idea is to design the railway station to be the center and the gateway of Moratuwa city and tend to grow Moratuwa city from that point of distribution (like garden city movement) with having East and West Entrances accommodate under one big long span roof, the functional and services buildings designed as to be a separate capsules and connecting East and west entrances with a bridge makes more convenient to the people to use the facilities efficiently.
Especially the long span structure which I designed with circular hollow section to form the adjoining series of arches with having the PTFE membrane as the Skin of the Roof make it more sustainable with easy build and fast construction. The whole structure span 140m with only having 18 points touching on the ground.
