The highly anticipated Maya Train, or Tren Maya, is set to be a 948-mile-long high-speed railway that will traverse the Yucatán Peninsula, connecting hotspots from the ancient Mayan ruins in Palenque and culturally-rich towns to the ever-popular beach resort destinations of Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Cancún and more.
The Tulum station in particular was designed with the area’s tropical climate in mind by Aidia Studio.
The unique sweeping latticed roof, constructed from structural steel and glass-reinforced concrete panels, will feature small openings for natural sunlight to pour in and fresh sea breezes to waft through the station that will be balanced by cool, shady areas.
A second level of shops and restaurants will loom over the railway platform below where the eye-shaped roof is at its highest middle point before dipping down on either end to create a dramatic entrance and exit for the trains.
“The motifs on both outer and inner sides are reminiscent of Mayan traditional geometrical patterns,” Aidia Studio told Dezeen.
Expected to be complete by late 2023, the Maya train will attract up to 8,000 daily riders across 18 stops that will run through the southeastern states of Quintana Roo, Chiapas, Yucatán and Campeche.
