Subway station architects intend to cheer you up

The Start reports

“In anticipation of the extension of the Spadina subway north from Downsview, the TTC has hired a gaggle of globe-trotting architects to design six new stations.

Among them are two leading U.K. practitioners, Will Alsop and Norman Foster, both of whom have worked in Toronto. Alsop, of course, is the author of the celebrated “flying tabletop” at the Ontario College of Art and Design. Foster’s only local project is the University of Toronto’s Leslie Dan Pharmacy Building.

“If you can cheer someone up for a few minutes,” Alsop declares, “it’s worth it.” “
