The Meridian line Akashi Ferry Terminal in Japan - image 3

Located in the side shore, this building is designed with planned concept that is based on the idea of tough terminal. This building is intended to be a terminal for a ferry line linking Awaji Island to the mainland. This building is very strategic for all ship activities. This building is constructed with good materials that are very water resistant. The waiting hall is the main space in this building. The hall is very wide that is completed with good air circulation to make comfortable and fresh for all the time. The building is a type of camera obscura, projecting an image representing the world outside. From the building the people can see the view and beautiful sea. If a journey is a process of confirmation for oneself of what exists in the outside world, then entering the waiting hall, where one encounters an image of the world, can be said to be the first step in that process. This building is wonderful main gate of the world via the sea. The passageway, the other space of the terminal, is completely different from the waiting hall in being a space of reality. The hall is also completed with glass windows and cooling systems.
