Lille Train Station

Built in celebration of Lille‘s selection as the cultural capital of Europe in 2004, the station is a radiating icon of the city. From inside the building, a glowing pink box at once greets travelers before meeting Lille’s often overcast skies, and moreover emanates throughout the city at night, providing a key orientation point.
