Panoramic photos of some Paris Metro stations.
One of my favorite Metro stations is Concorde on the 12 line. Love all the letters on the tiles.
Those look almost identical to Montreal metro stations. Except that Garde de Lyon one. Wow that one looks fantastic.
I really enjoy these. A lot. Especially When I can view them fully without scrolling. Expansive and symmetrical, my kind of thing. The ghost images in some of them are rather nice too. Jason, are the letters arbitrary in the Concorde station? Just wondering. It is a nice look.
All that's lacking is that distinctive Paris Metro smell...
The Garde de Lyon station looks very similar to the new jubilee line stations such as waterloo and westminster on the London Underground.
The letters aren't arbitrary in the Concorde station - it's the text of the French constitution I believe.
This is a really cool idea and the pics are great.
can anybody let me know where to find the full text if you spell out lal the letters on the concorde tiles in the concorde metro station.
colin, can you tell me where i can find this text?
Love the usability feature on the tunnel ends at Abbesses; it tells you which is the next station in each direction. (Of course, the newer stations don't have it...)
Chris: apparently, it's the French version of the declaration of human rights: i googled for a sentence i could read and came up with this: http://www.adminet.com/ddhc.txt - I really like the idea, and it looks fantastic.
I also particularly like the Louvre station, filled with sculptures and in the same style as the museum itself.
