Achieving the project vision was accomplished through a flexible station framework that allowed adaptation to unique environments through a community driven design process. The architect-lead design team included a station specific artist, landscape designer and community group for each station.
The team worked extensively with the community to adapt each station to the unique context of each neighborhood. The process resulted in innovative stations where art and architecture reflect the ideals, history and culture of each individual station area. Each station has a theme supported by the community’s vision that drives individual design elements providing an interactive means of engaging patrons while waiting on the train.
The stations are executed in a manner that enhances the passengers’ comfort and safety while also capturing the their imagination. The transit system is the largest display of free public art in the United States.
