The Hannover railway station designed by Hansjörg Göritz is an extraordinary example of elegance and functionality united in one architectural project. Created and presented at the Expo 2000 as part of a series of railway stations for the Expo-line which connects the airport to the exhibition headquarters. The Hannover station is animated by blue cobalt glass blocks designed to match the exact colour of the German state railway logo. The standard glass block was modified to achieve the cobalt blue requested and to achieve the technical load bearing requirements for horizontal applications such as walkways and floors.
