Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station
Vaughan, ON

This is a true temple of transportation, most of it below grade. If passengers riding the epic escalators that connect its three levels feel they are entering a 21st-century underworld, it's because they are. The clash between the suburban past and the urban present is most obvious at the spectacular glass-enclosed Vaughan Metropolitan Centre station . It features a polished stainless-steel ceiling punctuated with chamfered skylights that may be the most remarkable thing of its kind ever seen in these parts.

The station exemplifies the seamless integration of art and architecture. Clearly, artists were brought into the design process early in the project.
