The introduction of the design for the planned Nanjing North Railway Station in China has caused criticism.

Inspired by Nature, Misinterpreted by Critics:

Officials have stated that the design draws inspiration from the Yangtze River and blooming flowers, paying homage to Nanjing’s famous plum blossoms. However, public reception of the design has been less than enthusiastic.

Comments on platforms like Weibo have been critical, with many users likening the station’s design to a maxi pad. The comparison has sparked humor and sarcasm, with individuals questioning the structure’s practicality and aesthetics.

While some commenters found amusement in the resemblance to sanitary products, others expressed concern about the design’s functionality and potential impact on the city’s image.

Despite the online backlash, construction on the Nanjing North Railway Station is set to commence in the first half of the year, indicating that the controversy has not deterred officials from moving forward with the project.
