As part of a commuter rail project connecting the European and Asian sides of Istanbul, two historic train stations are to be physically relocated to new platforms a few hundred meters from their present locations. To make the process clear to the contractors on site, a three-dimensional visualization was developed to illustrate the sequence in which a temporary steel frame would be constructed around the structure so that it could be lifted and moved by a mobile crane.
