Photos: Subway Entrances and Identity

The folks at Atlantic Cities conjured a photographic survey of subway entrances from around the world, selected for the story they allegedly tell about their city. Do they match they're region's character, be it sleek, subtle, or sad? Or are they mainly a product of neighborhoods. It's clear to us that some impose themselves as civic architecture while others have a more local flavor (like Chicago's very own 18th Street Pink Line Station). Some are just plain wacky like the pair from Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. Being that every system has a wide diversity of station designs it's hard to claim a single representative, but there are certainly patterns dictated by culture and era. [Atlantic Cities]
