The station that shaped Wuhan’s image as a transportation hub

An investigation into the history of the original Wuhan Dazhimen Railway Station, a beautiful French style building from the 1920’s which was once the most modern and important railway station in China, and helped to shape Wuhan’s image as a transportation hub. The building stands abandoned today. This project acts as an AR museum of the building’s history, accessible from the street.
