My attempt of this railway station building design is to experiment how to derive a new construction trend with shell structures. Inspiring from hollow shell dome in Kalutara stupa, my design idea is to interpret another dimension of shell structures that suits to socio-economic background of Sri Lanka by using precast technology. With my design I am attempting to explore the abilities of shell structures and to pronounce them to the society. The idea is to share the knowledge of shell structures and to aware the public about the possibilities of precast shell structures. As an approach for my design idea, the joineries and the construction details of the structure is exhibited through the building.
