Trypophobe-Torturing Architecture
The Train Nest is Made Up of Repeated Forms and Perforations

{SummaryTitle}

Masters student Feiyu Qi described the types of forms that fascinate him, happening to create the very patterns that deeply disturb people with a psychological disorder called Trypophobia. The designer’s Train Nest project features plenty of small openings and repeated shapes that bother these sufferers; however, the features create architectural characteristics that make a mesmerizing experience for most people who would enter the building.

This proposal is a reinterpretation of Vienna’s existing Westbahnhof train station. It houses the many platforms and atria, entangling them in bony, veiny and fibrous structures with spiky volcano-like roofs. The Train Nest is a chaotic-looking transportation hub that would—perhaps surprisingly—house a logical program. Its extraterrestrial construction has an unexpected organic quality of a growing organism.
