The West Kowloon Station structure in Hong Kong is supported by nine sleek mega columns with a maximum height of 45 meters to create a dynamic atrium space.

The structure of the station entrance effectively brings daylight into the atrium while the green roof system helps reduce heat transfer to the indoor enviornment.

Upon service commencement of 23 Sep 2018, the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong High-Speed Rail (Hong Kong Station) will connect to the massive high-speed rail network in the Chinese Mainland.

The name “动感号” (translated as "Vibrant Express")stood out among 16,000 entries in the High-Speed Rail Train Naming Competition for its representation of Hong Kong, which is a lively and vibrant city.
