People should visit a railway station in the same way they would visit a historic monument. These moo ern-day palaces have accompanied the history of the railway for one hundred anc fifty years, they are their cities' memory, a haven between journeys, and a continuation of the urban space. Dream Stations, a Worldwide Odyssey tells the saga of over fifty of the most beautiful rail stations around the world. Those whose architecture stuns and delights ; centenarians whose interior design, sculptures, and style bear testimony to the era of their construction ; the ultra-contemporary structures that offer a fresh take on the railway in the twenty-first century. Mixing all ages, cultures, and thousands of personal journeys, these rail stations offers us a voyage around the globe. Photos and texts highlight the sublime, charming, or innovative architecture of these edifices, these animated living spaces adapted to the era in which we live. As an extension of urban vitality, the railway station creates a true complicity between the railway, the train, and the city. Fifteen themes from the series "Rail Stations on Film" are introduced throughout the book, embellishing the text with stories of the unforgettable presence of these stopping places both in fiction and in our imagination.
