Transit Architecture ?

Postby portlander » Wed Oct 27, 2004 7:18 pm

I am doing research on transit stations and metro stations and am wondering if anybody can give me good precedents to look at. (for example, Metro Stations in Genoa, Renzo Piano) Thank you.

Utrecht centraal in the Netherlands for the ultimate 1970's transit station.

I'm sure there would be a history of London underground out there somewhere, the original cut & cover, brick built stations are quite interesting.

Check out Rogers Bilbao metro station designs. The shell shaped entrances to the underground stations are now called "Fosteritos" by the spanish.
