Diploma Project
The Night Express

The Night Express challenges conventional boundaries and delves into how a re-imagined sleeper train concept can enhance our lives. In our fast-paced world, the significance of night trains has been overshadowed, forgetting that they were once a privilege rather than an ordeal. It’s time to decelerate and revisit the allure of night travel.
