Central Station – Liège
The new Belgian main station in Liège was designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava. The official opening took place in September 2009. The monumental arch covering the station is 160 metres long and 32 metres high. Despite its immense dimensions, the arch looks incredibly light and is an excellent example of Calatravas’s almost artistic skills in structural engineering. Steel, glass and white concrete were used as construction materials.
