DesignEdit

This station covers a total construction area of 130,000 square metres (1,400,000 sq ft), which has been described as the largest train station in Asia. This station project is collaborated designed by AREP in 2017, China Railway Design Corporation,  China Architecture Design & Research Group, BMEDI and China Academy of Urban Planning & Design. The construction began on August 29, 2018 by China Railway 12th Bureau Group, China Railway Construction Engineering Group,  China Construction Third Engineering Bureau and finished in the end of 2020.[2]

The concept design is inspired by the water culture of Baiyang Lake. The oval waterdrop shape symbolised a dewdrop on a lotus or a gushing spring. Undulating layers on the roof look like ripple on the water surface. The facade design uses element of the traditional Chinese grand hall showing Chinese cultural genes.[3][2]

It has a solar panel array on its roof with an installed capacity of 6 MW.[4]
