ORANGE COUNTY, UNITED STATES

Text description provided by the architects. Los Angeles — The new Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) sets a precedent for civic-minded transit hubs in the United States. HOK designed ARTIC, which represents the next generation of public transportation in Southern California, as an innovative new transit station that serves as a destination in itself.

“ARTIC is a community-focused building that will change how people think about public transportation,” said Ernest Cirangle, FAIA, LEED AP, design principal for HOK’s Los Angeles office. “This iconic facility is a symbol of a new era of public transit and was only made possible because of city leaders’ unwavering commitment to a contemporary and bold design.”

Projected to serve the transportation needs of more than three million people annually in the coming years, the 67,000-sq.-ft. transit hub links commuter and regional rail service and intercity bus systems including Amtrak, Metrolink, OCTA bus service, Anaheim Resort Transportation (ART), Megabus.com and Greyhound. ARTIC’s flexible design ensures that it can serve as a southern terminus for California’s future high-speed rail system. In addition to accommodating passenger arrivals, departures and transfers, ARTIC integrates amenities such as transit-oriented retail, Wi-Fi and charging stations, parking, bike racks, lockers, community space and specialty dining.

HOK won an international competition to design the project. Officials challenged the team to create an icon that would welcome a new age of public transportation into the region. The station also was conceived as a catalyst for transforming Anaheim’s core into a pedestrian-friendly zone that promotes connectivity and a vibrant, mixed-use environment. Known as the “Platinum Triangle,” the area around the station includes destinations such as Angel Stadium, the Honda Center, the HOK-designed Anaheim Convention Center and nearby Disneyland.

“The master plan establishes a clear pedestrian pathway flanked by future, mixed-use development with ARTIC as the primary destination,” said Cirangle. “The extroverted building has a significant but welcoming presence and will help spur transit-oriented development.”

Drawing inspiration from classic grand transit halls including Grand Central Terminal in New York, along with the structural elegance of local airship hangars, the team developed a 21st-century design concept for the forward-looking transit facility. The design achieves ARTIC’s signature parabolic form by employing a diagrid structural system of diamond-shaped steel arches infilled with translucent ETFE (ethylene tetrafluoroethylene) pillows. At the north and south ends, freestanding curtain walls bring in daylight and open the building to views. The long-span, grid shell structure creates a grand, light-filled atrium space that accommodates open circulation.

The design team used building information modeling (BIM) to develop ARTIC’s complex form, geometry and functions, to navigate the complexities of the building systems, and to study the building’s tolerances and environmental performance. “By using BIM, we were able to optimize and coordinate the precise geometry of the vaulted diagrid shell, ETFE facade technology, metal panel rain screen systems and glass,” said Albert Kaneshiro, AIA, LEED AP, HOK’s project manager. “BIM allowed us to match ETFE connections with the geometry of the steel in a structure that is constantly expanding and contracting.”

Based on the city’s goals for sustainability, the team designed ARTIC for U.S. Green Building Council LEED Platinum certification. The vault-shaped structure acts in concert with advanced mechanical systems to optimize energy efficiency. Inflated ETFE cushions cast a soft, translucent light throughout the great hall, while the additional frit pattern on the outer layer reduces solar heat gain. Convection currents naturally ventilate the building as heat rises from the lower south end up to the north side and out through operable louvers. The radiant heating and cooling floor system and optimized HVAC system will help reduce ARTIC’s energy consumption by 50 percent.

LEDs mounted on the diagrid structure illuminate the ETFE pillows in gradations of shifting colors, providing a striking presence on the night skyline. As darkness falls, ARTIC becomes lit from within and acts as a beacon from the freeways and local streets.

More about this product

Terrazzo & Marble has supplied Terroxy Resin Systems to numerous airport projects around the world, providing highly durable, low-maintenance, aesthetically pleasing and sustainable epoxy flooring. The following characteristics make Terroxy Resin Systems by Terrazzo & Marble the ideal option for airport flooring:

  • Durability: Terrazzo’s impeccable durability and strength are ideal for the numerous high traffic areas within airports including security areas, terminals, baggage claims, car rental facilities, restaurants, and retail stores. The seamless feature of terrazzo floors allows for travelers to commute from one side of the airport to the other at ease without the impediment of grout joints for their wheeled luggage, immensely reducing indoor noise. While the initial cost for other flooring systems might appear to be more affordable, they require more maintenance than terrazzo flooring. Other flooring systems such as carpet or vinyl tiles have to be replaced frequently, especially in high traffic areas, while terrazzo stands the test of time and typically lasts the lifetime of the building.
  • Low Maintenance: Since airports are continuously operating during the day, the easier the maintenance, the better. Seamless terrazzo flooring allows for easy cleaning and sanitizing, and day-to-day maintenance only requires using a mop and a bucket of warm water. Terrazzo & Marble’s Terroxy Resin Systems Epoxy Matrix also helps to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus.
  • Aesthetics: Terrazzo offers unlimited possibilities by allowing any imaginable combinations of colors, patterns, logos, and pictures. This allows designers and architects to create distinctive designs that create memorable branding for airports along with wayfinding graphics for easier commuting. Terroxy Resin Systems special formulation does not allow for colors to fade or wear thin.
  • Sustainability: Terrazzo has long been a recycled product and was created centuries ago by Venetian workers utilizing waste chips from slab marble processing. The following aspects make Terroxy Resin Systems a sustainable choice for airport flooring:
    • Use of recycled content for aggregates
    • Use of local/regional materials
    • High durability, lasting the lifetime of the building
    • Does not emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
