China’s Nanjing Train Station’s Proposed Designs Resembles Sanitary Napkin

As images of the Nanjing North Railway Station have taken over the Internet, it’s gone viral for all the wrong reasons. The chatter isn’t really about the building’s amenities or cost. Rather, the discussions are all about the peculiar design. The building has a four-loped design as per the aerial view. According to a BBC article, the buildings are designed to mimic the city’s plum blossom, its floral symbol. Nanjing is known for its beautiful light pink-hued plum blossoms.

However, Netizens have a completely different point of view. Many have pointed out that the proposed train station’s design resembles a sanitary pad. One Weibo user commented that while Netizens immediately realised it looked like a sanitary napkin, the architect still didn’t seem to have a clue.

Moreover, construction is supposed to begin in the first half of 2024.

Apart from the unusual sanitary napkin-shaped rooftop, a butting joke amongst Netizens, the building will also have many traditional Chinese architectural features.

And will be built in 20 billion Chinese yuan ($2,763 million).
