Warsaw has the world's best new underground station

Warsaw's underground station Plac Wilsonia has been nominated as the world's best new underground station at the Metro Awards 2008. Its entrances are like weeping willows, light streams in from a window in the ceiling. In an interview with Izabela Kraj, architect Andrzej Chołdzyński explains: "It is paradoxical that Warsaw has one of the shortest underground lines in the world but the best station. I am very glad, because the award was given by 800 experts from around the world. ... It certainly helps to break the cliche that an underground station doesn't have to look good, and the greyer and cheaper it is the better. " Chołdzyński has now been commissioned to design the first seven stations of the second underground line that is in the planning. "The designs include colourful butterflies at the entrances and a multimedia gallery for contemporary art at every stop."
