Delhi Metro

New Delhi, India. 2010

Working with engineers Pell Frischmann, JMP designed 10 new stations for the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. Tunnelling south on Line 2 from the city centre near Edwin Lutyens' celebrated government buildings on the Rajpath, the stations are strategically sited south of the city centre from Udyog Bhawan. They serve a 15km section of the Metro that passes through 500ha of commercial, residential and institutional districts. This fast-track commission was completed in time for the Commonwealth Games in Delhi 2010. A key challenge was to design architectural and structural elements that could be fabricated and erected within the historic context.
