Gungahlin College Students ‘Pull Out All Stops’ in Light Rail Design

There was no shortage of creativity and flair on show at Gungahlin College last week as the year 12 architectural students presented their own take on the Gungahlin Place light rail stop design.

Over the course of the semester, each student was tasked with designing the stop, based on their own take on how it should look and function, taking design cues from the built and natural environments and local and leading architectural examples.

Canberra Metro Communications staff were invited to witness the presentation on 14 June and offer any helpful feedback, with Canberra Metro Operations' Patronage and Marketing Manager, Sally Coyle applauding the use of ideas and imagination.

“The students didn’t hold back when designing their own stops, incorporating a variety of unique design elements, like functional public spaces, beautiful vertical columns, minimalist shelter concepts and one design even included a waterfall on the roof,” Sally said.

Canberra Metro is proud to be involved with Gungahlin College and looks forward to seeing these budding architects applying their skills in successful future careers.
