Echoing the citadel of Besançon, the stone walls of this new station spread out in the heart of a wooded, undulating landscape crossed by the Rhin-Rhône high-speed rail line.
Both Land Art and a functional design linking one means of transport to another, it introduces an elegant composition of walls and footbridges into the landscape.
