Train/Railway Stations



Santiago Calatrava Valls studied architecture at the Escuela Tecnica Superios de Arquitecture de Valencia in 1969 and later studied civil engineering in 1975. Calatrava began his first architecture and engineering practice in Zurich, Switzerland in 1981. All of his work is readily characterized by its focus on architecture, engineering, and sculpture. Much of his career is dedicated to bridges and train stations, but their forms depict a language that is derived from natural forms and the human body. With strong gestures of form and unorthodox structural techniques, Calatrava’s style has been called by many as linking the seperation between structural engineering and architecture.

“…Louis Page Jr. and Louis Southerland, who had been classmates at MIT, formed the firm of Page and Southerland in Austin, and during the 1930s, completed landmark work for the Austin State School, Rosewood Housing (one of the first public housing projects in the United States) and the 1937 Austin City Hall, as well as houses for Lyndon B. Johnson and many other legendary Texas figures. Louis Page began what would become a strong link between the firm and academia by teaching at the University of Texas. His brother, George, joined the firm, expanding the name to Page Southerland Page…

Though now a large firm with multiple offices in the U.S. and abroad, Page has retained a rootedness in the communities it serves and an investment in making a long-term difference in the cities where it builds. There is a strong belief in the kind of cumulative placemaking that great firms have made in the past. The current Page practice is aimed at making that kind of difference in the 21st century through a sophisticated integration of civic involvement alongside progressive planning, urban design and architecture.” (source)

Burns & McDonnell was founded in 1898 by two new Stanford University engineering graduates — Clinton S. Burns and Robert E. McDonnell — in Kansas City to provide the most potential clients in a 200-mile radius for cities and towns in need of water and power systems to support growth.

The firm was built on a client-first culture — working to make clients successful — up to a pivotal moment in 1985, when a small band of Burns & McDonnell employees risked their personal finances to secure a loan to buy the firm from Armco Steel, which had purchased the company in 1971.

Today, the employee-owners draw strength from their sense of perseverance, dedication and ownership. The firm is constantly evolving with the world around us, knowing that seemingly ordinary projects lead to extraordinary opportunities to Create Amazing.

The company was first formed in 1848, when Matthew Hall opened a lead-work business in the UK. This later became the Matthew Hall Group of Companies. Separately, in 1883 Leonard Fairclough started a stone business in the UK, which expanded into construction at the turn of the century.
In 1982 Fairclough Construction merged with William Press (founded in 1913) to form AMEC plc. Six years later the Matthew Hall Group of Companies was incorporated into the AMEC Group. AMEC was acquired by Wood PLC in October of 2017, they then shifted to more of an energy and sustainability driven company and moved away from just buildings.

In 1958, Alexander Ewing, at the time working for his father’s firm, joined with the in house architect Stanley Cole in order to design the expansion of the Rohm and Haas offices in Philadelphia. Although initially the design ran into trouble due to the site’s inability to accomadate the needs of the company, Ewing and Cole managed to switch the location to a new site on Independence Mall, not far from the Liberty Bell. The resulting design recieved countless praise from the city due to it’s ability to expand while maintaining respect fro the park as well as the surrounding historic buildings.
In 1961 the firm was officially established as Alexander Ewing & Associates, with their headquartes in Philadelphia. Over the years the firm has taken on many partners including Michael P. Erdman, Joseph P. Eubank, Robert Cherry, and Robert Parsky, all the time changing the name of the company to their credit. But in 2003, following the death of partner Paul Brott and the departure of Bob Cherry, the firm took on the new name of EwingCole.

Al Samborn, a Structural Engineer, decided to become a founder of an engineering firm in 1948, following his military service.  He determined to create a firm based upon excellent project delivery.  Later throughout the firms years, engineers Jack Steketee, Burrie Otis, and John Evans joined the firm and developed it as a full A/E firm called SSOE.  Around the 1960’s, roughly 15 years following the firms founding, it began gaining national recognition, especially in the midwest as they began integrating advanced technologies into their practices.  As of 2021, SSOE embraced a new mission statement, “to deliver unparalleled client value that advances the AEC industry,” positions SSOE at the forefront of change, driven by SSOE’s digital transformation strategy.
