This summer I went to Washington D.C. for a short vacation with family. I had a great time there. Once there I realized how D.C. is great destination for architecture and public art. Now it might seem obvious, but for me when I thought about D.C. I think about government and politics, but now seeing it once again this time as an adult I see that the city has some stunning architecture, sculpture and interiors. In this article, I’ll be focusing on the interiors of some of the many train stations.
First is the incredible design of the metro stations. All of them have this style of rows of boxes lined up neatly to a vanishing point at the end of the station.
This was another station. I thought is was so grand.
This is a beautiful portico in Federal Triangle. A metro station is in the middle of this and the Environmental Protection Agency building is connected here. How grand.
Is this not an incredible station? That gold leaf!
I didn’t realize it was blurry, but you can still see that incredible ceiling and mezzanines.
