Nuova Bari Centrale High Speed Railway Station

For 25 years Bari has been absorbed by a debate on the future of the iron sea which separates its historically defined part and the expansion one. The project is part of a MArch degree thesis from the Polytechnic of Bari, about the 'Grande Bari' plan, involved to solve this issue. The goal of the project is to make the station a pleasant, clear and safe to use place, solving the problematic node of the tracks moving from the Centre of the City. The new infrastructure is sustainable and produces energy thanks twelve structural trees made of recycled steel with solar roof on the top.

Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture - Polytechnic of Bari

The Politecnico di Bari is an Italian public university founded in 1990, when the well-established Faculty of Engineering and the newly-founded Faculty of Architecture, which at that time were both part of the University of Bari, were brought together. Later the Second Faculty of Engineering was created in Taranto. The Faculty of Engineering, which dates back to 1943, at that time only offered a Civil Engineering Degree Course. Over the course of time, degree courses in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Management Engineering, Computer Science Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Building Engineering–Architecture, together with an Industrial Design Degree Course, were added. The Politecnico di Bari now offers a wide range of study opportunities, consisting in eight First Level Degree courses, eleven Second Level Degree courses and two Five-Year Second Level Degree courses, along with many Postgraduate courses and Ph.D.’s. Approximately 11,000 students are enrolled, in different locations in Bari, Foggia and Taranto. Current Rector is Professor Eugenio Di Sciascio. The Politecnico di Bari is an international centre of excellence which pursues "the cultural, scientific and technological progress through the organization of research in scientific, technological, humanistic and economic-social fields and of higher education mainly in architecture and engineering, as well as the processing and the transfer of the most advanced scientific and technological knowledge, for the development of the society and the territory" (art. 1 - Statute of the Politecnico di Bari) .
