Principal / Architect at Gateways | The NetherlandsMarten Wassmann studied architecture, both at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and at Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany, from which he graduated in 1997. Only three years later, Marten founded Gateways an Amsterdam-based design agency that approaches design aspects of Urban Mobility holistically. The office contributes proven expertise in Architectural and Urban Design with focus on metropolitan transit epicentres, central train stations, metro and light rail hubs, bus- and coach facilities, shared mobility systems, cyclists’, and pedestrians’ environments. Marten has been the responsible project partner and lead architect for several public and private urban development and transit projects of considerable scale and complexity in different countries. These include the seven stations of the Noord/Zuidlijn metro in Amsterdam, the major expansion of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol for Central Security, the Line 17 Charles de Gaulle Airport metro station in Paris, France, a winning design for the multimodal Central Train Station in Munich, Germany, and studies for facility design and urban integration for the Port Authority Bus Terminal, the world's largest bus station in Midtown Manhattan, New York.
