Beauty on the U-bahn

Cool article! I'm always astonished to hear that people would complain about subway stations that are "too opulent" - even Rümmler at his most extravagant has got nothing on the Moscow metro! In any case, within a narrow, underground environment that can easily become a drab and depressing postmodern hell, I think it's important to pay a bit of attention to aesthetics. Rümmler's stations along the U8 north to Wittenau are similarly colorful and worth the ride to check out.
