Above: T-Centralen Station, Stockholm, Sweden.
I've been lucky enough to experience some of the world's amazing undergournd subway systems, the Boston T, London’s Underground, the Tube, as well as the Metro in New York, Paris and Hong Kong. All of them uniquely indigenous and grand in thier own different ways. The above shots really make me want to visit Sweden, just to check out the Stockholm Tunnelbana!
Within these systems, architecture plays a big role in defining the environment of the subway. DesignBoom has a really nice collection of some of the most architecturally interesting subway stations - Enjoy: Subway Architecture!
And if you're in need of a little mental vacation, I've got a nice hour long mix of ambient subway, airport and travel audio that works nicely as an audio backdrop to help you escape during your next cup of coffee: Ambient Passport.
