Native Texas limestone and pink granite add texture throughout Belt Line Station.
Belt Line Station: A Stately Bearing"I was searching for a metaphor about sustainability - and came to realize that the station itself represented that idea," artist Brad Goldberg said.
Goldberg and the neighborhood advisory committee chose to enhance the natural setting at Belt Line Station. Landscaping emphasizes native grasses, as well as mesquite and cedar trees. A gradually ascending, mesquite-lined allée - a walkway shaded by uniformly planted trees - links the parking lot to the platform in a way that is at once understated and dramatic.
At the platform itself, columns feature alternating bands of polished and rough native Texas limestone. The 250 million-year-old stone, with its irregular texture and relief, is inherently sculptural. The windscreens feature bear grass laminated between translucent sheets. The simple, rustic materials combine to create what Goldberg calls a "Texas vernacular style."
