Old Vilnius train station will be renovated by Zaha Hadid

Green Connect, Zaha Hadid Architects’ proposal, was selected in the competition to transform Vilnius’ railway station.

Zaha Hadid Architects’ proposal “Green Connect” has won the design competition for the redevelopment of Vilnius’ railway station complex and the surrounding areas – a strategically important site for the city.
The project is designed with the passengers experience in mind and, at the same time, it will provide a new public space that will transform the site into a new destination for the city of Vilnius and the local community, not just for people who will benefit of the transportation hub’s services.

The proposal includes a new bridge over the railway tracks which connects the Naujininkai district, in the South, with the city center and Vilnius old town. Thanks to this project, the existing rail infrastructure will turn from “being a barrier that divides the city” into “a connector that unites Vilnius and serves as a transport hub for national and local rail services, in addition to the new Rail Baltic line that links with Europe’s high-speed network”.
