Millennium Line SkyTrain Station
Design + Planning
Metro Vancouver, BC
VIA Architecture was chief architect for the Millennium Line extension of Vancouver’s SkyTrain. VIA directed the station planning and architectural design processes for the overall system and were architects for the detailed planning, design and construction of the Vancouver segment. Rupert, Renfrew and Commercial Stations were all designed to be the nuclei for long-term neighborhood urban infill.
The design and construction of the new Millennium Line Rapid Transit system is a remarkable achievement on many levels. The system opened in August 2002, on budget and on a fast-track 4 year schedule, with an array of distinct architecturally designed stations sharing a common language of transparency, light and neighborhood welcome.
