Have you changed trains at Kings Cross recently? It's a bit like walking through a spaceship.

It's funny how crazy the tunnels look without advertising. We've totally factored it into our expectations of public environments.

This last piece had a nice write up at Ben Terrett's blog a few months ago, it's by Knut Henrik Henriksen.

I like how obviously 'now' this station is becoming – it would be cool if they could do this for all the stations – not making them all look 'now', but faithful to the time they were built. 

That would be fun. Not just travelling to another place, but experiencing a different age at every stop.
