Speech: 13 Metro / Subway
“Speech: 13, Metro” staat in het teken van de mooiste metrostations van de wereld. Met onder andere Amsterdam, München en Leipzig.
In the 21st century “metro” is increasingly perceived as synonymous with “megalopolis.” However, in this issue of speech: the metro is treated as a distinctive architectural type and a unique public space whose importance is growing with every year. The modern metro has ceased to be simply a means of getting to where you need to be by the shortest route; more than any other kind of public transport, it today determines the architectural image of large cities and the comfort of their urban environment. The layout and design of modern stations and entrance halts, the possibility of incorporating the widest range of functions into transport infrastructure, and the use of innovative technologies and materials are just some of the aspects which are examined under the heading of “metro architecture.” speech: 13 looks at the best metro stations that have been built in various corners of the world over the last three years—from Rio de Janeiro and Chicago to Dubai and Singapore, with numerous stops in Europe along the way.
