Public Art and Architecture: Creative Subways Around the World

with 2 comments

One of my favorite parts about traveling is finding fabulous works of public art and design. I can spend hours walking around cities on the lookout for creative installations, which is why I am a sucker for interesting subway architecture. Stockholm’s subway system happens to be a personal favorite, but there are many other underground systems around the world that make taking public transportation more than just getting from point A to point B.

I pulled together a list of cool subways over at Been Seen, along with a number of photos. The list is long, going from New York all the way to Dubai. Here’s a visual taste:

The Beauty of Mass Transit

Maybe it’s because I live in a city known for it’s public transportation, but I love mass transit. Anywhere I travel I make it a point to take a local bus or subway, and tend to put a map of the transit system in my pocket to be oggled at upon return. I am therefore enjoying the slideshow put together by the Huffington Post’s Dave Burdick.  It’s an excellent collection of the design of public transit maps.

Take a look at the full slideshow here.
