The coolest subway system in the world

Here’s something that made me smile.

And wish that our filthy, uninspiring underground system in London was even vaguely close to this in terms of style, gusto and imagination.

These are shots of Sweden’s new subway system – it reminds me of a cross between a James Bond villain’s headquarters and something you might see at Disneyland. Both of which are no bad thing in my book.

I love how it plays with the notion of modernity and antiquity and the sense of being buried deep underground. The lighting plays a big part too: delivering, I suspect, great moments of drama as each corner is turned.

Wonderful.
